Over all I think it’s an outstanding development.  I have spent countless days hiking all of this part of Salt Spring Island.  In some ways I really wish the developer had added in a few connection trails across the property.   There are numerous old logging road in the area and it’s still one of my favored places to hike.   If you have any questions do not hesitate to call or email.  Remember the listing agent is working for the developer and her job is to sell at the highest possible price.  As a buying agent my job is to get all the information for the buyers so they can buy at the best possible price.

It has been reported in the local newspaper the Driftwood that this development is not in the fire district.  At this time the developer has asked the fire district to amend it’s letter patent to include this development into the fire district.
