PACA has erected the first of numerous trail signs in the Gillies Cr. Protected Area. Due to the excellent relations that the club has forged with numerous conservation groups and BC Parks, we have initiated the first of what we hope will be numerous signage projects in the valley.


Campbell Mt. Access News City of Penticton Staff will be hosting an additional site visit of the three proposed trail options for the Campbell Mountain lands on February 26th 2011 at 10 am. More detailed instructions on where to meet etc., TBA. This will be a chance for those who could not attend the hike organized by Coun. Albas and Andrew to see each trail location, and for everyone to have an on-site discussion with staff regarding each option.


Keep an eye on PACA's website and discussion forum for more cycle related news all year!
