The Friendship Trail is an approximately 7 km multi-use trail which, when complete, will connect the communities of Mount Currie and the Village of Pemberton. The project was originally conceived by the Winds of Change, a collaborative public policy initiative of the Lil’wat Nation, Squamish-Lillooet Regional District and the Village of Pemberton. The Winds of Change identified the need for a safe non-motorized, pedestrian-friendly travel route aimed at encouraging commuting by bike and on foot as a priority recommendation in its “Healing Vision” report.
The trail will allow people to travel by bicycle, horseback or on foot, on a route that will be much safer and more pleasant that the current route used along the highway. The Friendship Trail will also provide a critical link in the larger Sea to Sky Trail project, a trail network undertaken by the SLRD, which, when complete, will be a 180 km multi-use recreation trail linking the Pacific Ocean south of Squamish with the community of D’Arcy on the southern shore of Anderson Lake.
