Applegate Trail runs behind Dressler Road from Wishart Road to the Painter Trail, as shown on the map below.
As part of the Royal Bay development, GableCraft Homes will be upgrading this trail connection. Work is expected to begin on July 5 and be complete by September 1, 2021.
Applegate Trail provides a link from Wishart Road to the Painter Trail which connects to Royal Bay Secondary School as well as to the North Ridge Trail that winds its way up to Metchosin Road.
It will soon be part of a network of trails linking to Meadow Park and Murrays Pond Park, with future connections to trails on the other side of Latoria Boulevard and into Latoria Creek Park.
New connections like this one move our community toward the goal of a concentric network of sea to sky trails that link our parks and neighbourhoods in healthy and beautiful ways.
