Nestled in the rugged wilderness of the Cascade Mountains, lies the beautiful Whipsaw Trail recognized this week by BFGoodrich Tires. The well-known public off-road trail was honored as one of their 2007 Outstanding Trails for its uniqueness, history and scenic views. More than 50 off-road enthusiasts from the Rover-Landers club of British Columbia were in attendance as BFGoodrich representatives presented a grant to the club. The grant will be used to preserve the scenic trail and allow for the continuation of conservation efforts for one of Canadas most picture-perfect areas. BFGoodrich Tires, working in conjunction with Tread Lightly! and United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA) launched the Outstanding Trails program in 2006 and over the course of two years has recognized eleven trails. Whipsaw is one of six trail locations being recognized by BFGoodrich this year. A long time favorite of B.C. off-roaders, Whipsaw is well-known for its breathtaking views and challenging off-road obstacles. The Whipsaw Trail offers something for every skill level and combines off-road adventure with unbelievable views, said Joe Mazur, light truck brand category manager for BFGoodrich Tires. Were honored to team up with groups like the Rover-Landers of British Columbia to help in the conservation efforts and ensure this area will continue to stay in tact and safe for all future visitors. The Rover-Landers of British Columbia is a registered non-profit society for Land Rover enthusiasts in and around British Columbia. The club strives to bring together people of common interest to enjoy off-road driving and share information regarding the maintenance, restoration and preservation of Land Rover vehicles. We are so pleased to see that the Tread Lightly attitude seems to be getting to all corners of the off-road community, said David Blair, Rover-Landers vice president. Over the past several decades, the ecosystems along the Whipsaw Trail have been damaged and need recovery from overuse and mud-bogging. “Being recognized as an Outstanding Trail helps us continue to restore and preserve one of the most beautiful trails in all of British Columbia.
