Grand Opening of the Franklin Heritage Trail

June 22 @ 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM PDT

Located approximately 60 km north of Grand Forks, the Franklin Heritage Trail was one of the most important trails leading to the rich mines in the Burrell Valley. The 1915 Hot Air Line was the end of the line for railway trains, and gold ore was carried by wagon trains to the end of the line to be reloaded on train cars and hauled to the smelter.

Grand Forks ATV Club and many partners have come together and made safety improvements to the trail, trying to maintain the original 123-year-old trail.

We invite everyone to join GFATV and others at Bluejoint Creek Recreation Site as we celebrate this great accomplishment!

Ribbon cutting will be at 10 am, followed by a trail ride of approximately 5 hours, travelling the original route and exploring the many historical points and signage as we travel the trail.

GFATV will host a BBQ at 5 when we return to Bluejoint Creek Recreation Site. Cake to follow.
