Banadad Trail fundraiser starts
The Banadad Trail Association is undertaking a fundraising campaign to construct a new section of the trail and enlarge the parking on the trail’s west end. The project will reconstruct the west end of the Banadad Trail, which crosses private property, secure a permanent easement, and ensure continued access for skiers from the west end.
A change in property ownership will allow the group to improve the west end of the trail, which is popular with both day skiers as well as the through skiers, who ski the entire 29 kilometers in one day.
The project cost is $11,340. The BTA has been awarded a Trail Connections Grant from the Department of Natural Resources that will cover $7,800 and the Association must raise the balance. Over $1,000 in donations have already been received.
