Wild Pacific Trail Society to cut ribbon on new scenic outlook

 

The new Artist Loops section of the Wild Pacific Trail will get its official opening Sunday at 2 p.m.

The trail celebration marks the completion of the Artist Loops on the landmark trail that winds its scenic way through ancient trails and beaches in Ucluelet, BC.

The trail on the West Coast of Vancouver Island has been named top-rated attraction in B.C. by TripAdvisor.

A bus will depart at 1:45 pm from Blackrock Resort to drive participants to the Ancient Cedars trail. 

This project completes major work to the northern end of the Artist Loops, which ends near Ancient Cedars.  

“This section offers unobstructed wide views up the coast and three decks to discover, each offering different views from varying elevations. Thank you to Crow Excavating and Oyster Jim for their trail artistry and expertise in sculpting this route,” said WPTS president Barbara Schramm.

“Thank you to our funders and the countless donors over the years who have made this recent trail possible. Funding and support for the Artist Loop completion project was provided by private donations, a grant from the Creekbed Foundation and the District of Ucluelet.”

After the trail opening, participants are invited to attend a 3 pm reception at Black Rock Resort followed by the Wild Pacific Trail Society’s AGM. 

“2014 was an exciting year for the Trail and we look forwarded to sharing last year’s highlights as well as our upcoming projects including our 2015 Interpretive programming and signage,” said Schramm.

“Our educational partnerships for this year are slated to include the Ucluelet Aquarium and the Central Westcoast Forest Society.”
