The City is continuously working to develop are-specific trail plans across Whitehorse. Public consultation and engagement activities are vital components of this work, which are carried out through the City's trail planning process. A Task Force is also created comprised of City Parks & Community Development Department staff, community associations, stakeholders, users of the trail system, and a hired trail consultant. The Task Force is convened on a short-term, as needed basis to make recommendations on the achievement of the 2007 Trail Plan’s guiding principles at the neighbourhood level, with particular focus on trail locations, designations, types of use, and trail etiquette.
The following trail planning projects are underway:
- Wolf Creek / Pineridge / Spruce Hill / Mary Lake / Cowley Creek / Golden Horn (Whitehorse South)
- January 26 - Spruce Hill residents meeting
- Porter Creek / Whistle Bend / Range Point / Takhini
- Final stages of plan development

“The citizens of Whitehorse will enjoy year-round access to a network of interconnected
non-motorized and motorized trails, greenway corridors and cycling routes that will
support the City’s commitment to creating a liveable, safe, attractive, healthy and
sustainable Winter City community.”
