Scoter Trail

Scoter Trail – Public Consultation on Restoration of North Section

Scoter Trail is an important recreational trail in the District of North Saanich that is valued by both our residents and visitors alike. The trail stretches along the Patricia Bay shoreline, from Patricia Bay Park in the south to the Tseycum First Nation lands in the north.

About the Project

Council have identified the rehabilitation of the North Section of the Scoter Trail as one of its strategic priorities. The trail is one of the most utilized within the District of North Saanich. The southern section of the trail was previously upgraded but the section north of Munro Road is in poor condition due to erosion from wave action and is in need of restoration so it can be reopened to public use. Restoration and reopening of the trail will provide a number of recreational benefits for the community.

Public Consultation

As part of the project, the District wants to hear how you think the trail should be restored. Consultation will be held from May 21 to June 18, 2019.

Topics for feedback will include:

  • Shoreline protection
  • Access points
  • Trail uses

There will also be an opportunity to provide additional comments and to sign up for construction information updates.
