Mount Brennan Backwoods Recreation Application

Mount Brennan Backwoods Recreation has submitted a new application for a 10-30 year tenure for non-mechanized adventure tourism and commercial recreation. Summer activities include guided and self-guided hiking, mountaineering, mountain biking. Winter activities include guided and self-guided ski touring and mountaineering.

As part of the application, the company has proposed to build or improve existing trails to establish the recreational area. These trails include Mount Brennan/Lyle Creek Trail, Rossiter/Jardine Trails, Brennan Ridge Trail, and a three kilometre trail from Highway 31A along Lyle Creek to improve hike-in access to the Mount Brennan Lodge.
