It might be more pleasant to head out to some of our local trails soon, thanks to a District of Squamish and School District 48 collaboration.
Locals have been increasingly complaining about human feces on local trails and a lack of facilities and parking for visitors.
In an effort to mitigate these neighbourhood and environmental impacts, the District has installed four Adventure Hubs near popular trailheads to offer off-street parking and washroom facilities. Each hub includes a bike tool station and porta potty. Three hubs are equipped with a bike wash.
All hubs close at 10 p.m. daily.
School District 48 has provided access to two school parking lots to be used outside of school hours.
- Don Ross Middle School, 42091 Ross Road, Lower Parking Lot
- Bottom of Legacy Climb, Mamquam Road above Quest University Canada (does not include a bike wash as there is no running water available at this location).
- Garibaldi Highlands Elementary School, 2590 Portree Way
- 2458 Mamquam Road Parking Lot
Please note, parking at the schools is not permitted during regular school hours, Monday to Friday between 8:30 am and 3:30 pm.
Users of the hubs can provide feedback directly to the District at 604-815-4040 (24-hours).
