Hikers should be sure to stay clear of any on-going work activities over the next year or so. 

Following completion of this work, VITA will approach WFP with a view to using sections of the old grade for part of the VI Trail.  This initiative will require gaining support of the ‘Namgis First Nation since the route is located across their traditional territory.
