The planned Cycle 16 Trail will be located in the beautiful Bulkley Valley, which is in the Northwest of British Columbia, Canada.
At about midway, it will cross the highway via an overpass or an underpass and follow the east side of the highway to Telkwa.
At the time, the Cycle 16 Board, in consultation with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure Design Team, opted for the route that includes a bridge. The Board has since opted to consider both the overpass and the underpass option. See report for more details.
In the spring of 2017, McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd. was hired to explore possible trail routes. They reported three possible routes. The Cycle 16 Board, in consultation with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure Design Team, opted for the route that includes a bridge. See report for more details.
In the summer of 2018, McElhanney Consulting Services Ltd. was again hired to provide a more detailed concept design of a challenging elevation change in Phase 1 of the project. Phase 1 begins at the Bulkley River bridge by the Riverside Par 3 and RV Park and ends at Laidlaw Rd.
The Regional District of Bulkley Nechako is seeking feedback from the public about the Cycle 16 non-motorized trail plans. Visit the Regional District’s website to see the plans for Phase 1 and provide your feedback. The RDBN will be the eventual owners of the trail when it is built. Cycle16 will play a support role in the operation and maintenance of the trail.

In June of 2020, Allan Kindrat P.Eng, PMP, of WSP, was hired on as Project Manager. Allan worked closely with the Stakeholders, pulling many pieces together and in August 2021, completed the Detailed Construction Design.
Help make this legacy trail a reality!
