Do you speak Dobson Trail? Become an ambassador for Canada’s oldest four-season, community-built trail!

Riverview is celebrating NB Wellness Week and the 60th anniversary of the Dobson Trail on Thursday, October 3. Come to the Riverview Community Hall (145 Lakeside Drive) at 7 p.m. to attend an interactive workshop, learn the language of trail tourism and become a designated ambassador for the Dobson Trail – Canada’s oldest four-season trail that is built and maintained by local volunteers.

“By coming together as a town to pedal trail tourism forward, we’re making Riverview a place where visitors and local trail enthusiasts want to stay, explore and spend,” says Ash Arrowsmith, community recreation worker for the Town of Riverview and vice-chair of the Fundy Hiking Trail Association. “We need the community to stand behind the Trail Town movement and share our exceptional hospitality with the world,” he added.

This free knowledge-sharing workshop is for residents, business owners, hikers, non-hikers, trail enthusiasts, nature warriors and anyone who cares about the Dobson Trail!

Participants will receive an "I Speak Dobson Trail" button upon completion of the workshop.

Mini-topics for discussion are:

  • History of the Dobson Trail
  • Healthy eating on the trial and how to dehydrate food
  • Our place in the Fundy Biosphere Reserve and the Amazing Places project
  • How to be a Trail Friendly Business
  • Preparing to hike all 58 km of the Dobson Trail
  • Points of interest, access points, campsites and terrain

Make sure to pre-register at www.townofriverview.ca/dobsontrail so your buttons and dehydrated food samples are ready for you!

This Trail Town-inspired workshop is modeled after the Oakridge, Oregon "We Speak Oakridge" community button program.
