A PASSION FOR THE TRAILS.

Vedder Mountain has for decades been a temple of recreation for people of the Fraser Valley. Recreation trails here date back more than half a century. Whether these trails began as game trails, old skid roads, or hunting trails, all have been co-opted over the ensuing decades by people eager to get out and experience nature, get away from the demands of busy lives or simply to get some exercise.

Vedder Mountain Trails Association began with a mandate to negotiate with industry and the government on behalf of all of the members of our respective individual recreational clubs. Our goal; legitimizing and sanctioning of the extensive network of trails on Vedder Mountain to preserve them for future generations. Pre and post-harvest tours allowed VMTA to have input on what are good and bad logging practices relative to the preservation of our trails. As a result, trails that would have been lost are open and available for the enjoyment of anyone who wants to venture into the woods.

These negotiations have led to comprehensive GPS mapping of the trail network, education and instruction on trail establishment, planning, building and maintaining and the ability to secure some funding to assist with ongoing trail signage and maintenance. Though our job is far from done, the trails we have today are better, safer, and more sustainable as a result and will only get better.
