Overview

The RMOW is leading the development of a non-motorized Recreation Trails Strategy (RTS) that will guide future decisions about how we develop, improve, access, fund, and manage trails and trail amenities (e.g., staging areas, signage, etc.). The RTS will not specify the number, location, or types of trails. This will be the focus for a future and more detailed non-motorized Trails Master Plan. To learn more about the RTS, see the tab below.

Phase 3 Engagement - Now Open

What we are gathering feedback on: For each of Whistler’s 11 trail network areas, we look at the general suitability of the area for trail development and make some specific recommendations for community review and feedback. The draft content is included in short form in the SURVEY tool below and in more detail in the RTS Core Content document.

How to provide feedback:


We are also gathering input from the Trails Planning Working Group, the Whistler Bear Advisory Committee, the Forests and Wildlands Advisory Committee, and the Recreation and Leisure Advisory Committee. Public and committee input, along with technical expertise and guidance from other studies, will help to inform the development of the Recreation Trails Strategy and the final recommendations contained within it.

Phase 2 Engagement

The previous round of community engagement took place in March-April, 2022 and the input received indicated a high level of support for the direction related to the being set for the project topic areas. See the Public Engagement Summary – Phase 2 document. For more background about the project, please visit the RTS project page.
