Rail Trail not yet complete

It is used by thousands of people, but the Okanagan Rail Trail is not yet complete.

However, efforts are underway to fill the voids in the beloved trail.

The Okanagan Indian Band is working with the federal government to have the former rail corridor at Duck Lake transferred to the band so that section of trail can be completed and rail trail administrators are working with the Agricultural Land Commission around the right-of-way adjacent to farm land in Kelowna.

It's not known when the final construction could occur on the rail trail.

"The money and design are sitting there and ready to go," said Matt Vader, chair of the Okanagan Rail Trail Committee.
