Rushbrook Trail

Rushbrook Trail

While in Prince Rupert and possessing a couple of hours of free time, consider taking a hike on the Rushbrook Trail which starts at Rushbrook floats and follows the coastline to Seal Cove. It has recently been made accessible to the public after being closed for over 10 years due to unstable rock formations.

The Rushbrook Trail Revitalization Project had broken ground in mid 2017 after Bear Creek Contracting had been awarded the contract following a lengthy campaign by the Rotary Club for funders and investors.  Bill Nicholls, (treasurer for the Rotary Club and a VIP at the Friendship House), stated that the Port of Prince Rupert, Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group and the CN were large contributors to the project.

When I walked the trail, it had been completely resurfaced with imported crushed granite, (being an old driller/blaster I just happen to notice these things), also lock block barriers had been put in place to protect the trail and pedestrians from falling rock. The only incomplete part of the project at the time was the planned bridges, but even so, the 1.2 km trail has it’s fair share of Prince Rupert’s magnificent scenery.
