Fun climb Monday

  • Jul. 29, 2011 1:00 p.m.

BC Parks and the Old Massett Village Council are organizing a special event at Tow Hill this coming holiday Monday (Aug. 1). The “Tow Hill Climb” is a chance for people to check out the new boardwalk at Tow Hill, and to celebrate the 100th anniversary of BC Parks. Andrew Merilees, parks coordinator for the Old Massett Village Council, said the event will take place between 11 am and 3 pm. People can register at the Tow Hill day use area, then hike up the new boardwalk to the viewpoint at the top of Tow Hill. It’s not a race, but there will be a clock at the registration area so people can note their start and finish times. There will be prizes for the hikers who come closest to “mystery times”. The trail is “steep, but short and easy, and really accessible,” Mr. Merilees said. “There are good railings and stairs… Anybody can do the trail if they take their time.” Everyone is welcome, young and old, islanders and visitors. “It’s a family fun event to celebrate the new facility,” said BC Parks area supervisor Lucy Stefanyk. “We want people to come and check out the great new walkway.”
