Happy feet in Fairmont Hot Springs

Happy feet in Fairmont Hot Springs

A brand new path is almost completed in Fairmont Hot Springs.

Construction started Tuesday, August 8th on the Fairmont Foot Path, reported Tex Deagnon, president of the Fairmont Community Association. The 1.1 kilometre path will go from Fairmont Resort Road, runs parallel to Hot Springs Road and ends at the corner of Wilder Loop.

“Numerous people are using the trail already,” reported Mr. Deagnon. “It’s amazing the enthusiasm we’ve seen.”

Digging and compaction on the six foot wide path were completed last week. As of the Pioneer’s press time, paving was still to be done. The Fairmont Community Association hopes to have the path completed by early September. Other elements on the trail will include a dog station, a bear-proof garbage can and two park benches alongside the path.

Phase one cost $115,000. A second phase is planned that will connect the footpath to the Columbia River bridge by Hwy 93/95.
