Pidherny Survey

We want to hear from you!

Do you recreate at Pidherny? 
Are you interested in the future of Pidherny
If so, this survey is for you.

Pidherny has become one of the most popular year-round recreation destinations in the Prince George area and the popularity of the site continues to grow! The increased popularity and visitation, together with evolving recreation demands, have led to growing management issues and concerns.

In response, the Prince George Cycling Club, in partnership with the City of Prince George and support from Recreation Sites and Trails BC, has initiated the development of a recreation and access management plan (RAMP) for Pidherny. 

We thank you in advance for taking the time to help inform the planning process. The information you share through this survey will help us prepare a RAMP.
