Lower Dry Creek Trail

Lower Dry Creek Trail

Running parallel with one of Port Alberni's busiest commercial corridors, Dry Creek Trail provides a short reprieve from the hustle and bustle of lower 3rd Avenue.  The trail was completed in 2016 as part of Dry Creek Improvement Project, a $2.7 million infrastructure project undertaken to reduce the flood risk by widening the channel base and reconstructing the side slops.  The project also benefited local fish species and their habitat, improving migration, spawning and rearing conditions throughout the creek. These works are evident by looking along the channel from the trail.  

The trail runs directly along the creek and behind the many businesses along 3rd Avenue.  Although not paved, it is level grade and therefore well suited for families with bicycles and strollers.  Looking west across the creek, trail-goers can observe the operations at Western Forest Products - Somass Division.
