The West Ridge Trail Extension was recently completed on Mount Thompson. The West Ridge Trail runs form the valley floor to the top of Mount Thompson and the Rim Trail. Along the West Ridge Trail be sure to check out the historic hang-gliding site, Gliders’ Point. Gliders’ Point now has two picnic tables, a fire ring and a cedar bench which were supplied by Recreation Sites and Trails BC. Gliders’ point can be found at 1.8 KM from the West Ridge Trail trailhead. The entire West Ridge Trail is just under 8.5 KM one way.
