The Okanagan Rail Trail may already be a hit with tens of thousands of users but it wants to get better.

A survey has been posted on to collect input on trail use and future development.

“A master plan for the Okanagan Rail Trail is being developed to ensure a balanced approach is taken when it comes to developing recreational opportunities and protecting the environment,” the rail trail’s Facebook page states. “To plan effectively we need a good understanding of how the trail is used and what users value and desire for the future.”

The survey wants to look at access points and transportation connections, washrooms, parking and wayfinding signage needs, balancing recreation and conservation needs and creating a long-term development plan.

The trail runs about 50 km from Okanagan Lake in downtown Kelowna to Coldstream.

The survey can be taken here.
