For the International Trails Day event co-hosted by VISTA on June 1st in Port Alberni, a map was produced showing the proposed route of the Vancouver Island Spine Trail.

This map depicts both existing and proposed portions of the trail, including a 231 km route identified in the North Island Feasibility Study delivered this past March.

Trail-building efforts in 2013 will once again focus on the Tuck Lake section between Cowichan Lake and Port Alberni, which appears in yellow on this map.

Close-ups of the area in photos and as a KMZ file (which you can save it to your desktop and open in Google Earth) can be found here:

Photos, maps, and a trip report from 2012’s trail-building activity in the area can be found at the following links:
