Project Description

TRC completed this assessment report as the foundation upon which South Westland Region along with the potential partners could evaluate the feasibility of a proposed Glacier Country Trail and agree on further actions.

The report provided advice on visitor markets, trail vision and design, governance arrangements, economic impact and possible project risks.

TRC evaluated how the proposed walking trail could link the scenic and cultural features of the region with the potential to become an iconic experience, attracting visitors to the region, creating a visitor economy that is more resilient to environmental and visitation changes, and which has the potential to create new opportunities for the region.
