Friendship Trail: Pemberton Farm Road East Connector

The Friendship Trail: Pemberton Farm Road East Connector will be a 0.75km separated, multi-use trail along Pemberton Farm Road East that will connect the existing Friendship Trail between Highway 99 and Den Duyf Park.

The new Connector will be separated from the roadway as a multi-directional, flat, 3m wide paved pathway, meeting All Ages and Ability (AAA) accessibility standards and will include an actuated cross-walk, lighting, signage, and fencing.

The Connector will complete one of the final stages of the Friendship Trail – a 7.2km pedestrian and cyclist trail that will physically, socially and economically link the the Village of Pemberton, Squamish-Lillooet Regional District and Líl’wat Nation.

The Friendship Trail is part of the larger Sea to Sky Trail project - a 180km multi-use trail linking Squamish to D’Arcy.  

Phase 1

The first phase of the Friendship Trail: Pemberton Farm Road East Connector project will commence in Fall 2022 with the removal of some cedar trees and road retention work adjacent to the North Arm Channel on the west side of Pemberton Farm Road East.

While the Village makes every effort to reduce the removal of trees during construction, it is necessary to remove a small number of cedar trees along Pemberton Farm Road East to allow for a safe and functional roadway and trail for vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists alike. The cedar trees marked for removal are located within the Village’s Statutory Right of Way (SRW) and not on private property. To view the extents of the Statutory Right of Way and the location of the trees to be removed, see the Survey Plan.

We understand this work may be temporarily disruptive to surrounding residents and we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Future phases of the project are scheduled to be completed in Spring/Summer 2023.
