Trustee’s Trail development Salt Spring

There does not seem to be any one name for this area some call it Juniper area others call it Spring Gold way area.  The official name is Rainbow Grove although I have never really see it in any marketing information.  I think I would have called it Mt Erskine Meadows. The development is going to be rolled out in 3 phases. Phase one (SS-SUB-19-93) free hold development (non strata) of 25 lots (fee simple).  The development has excellent paved roads that are owned by the Ministry of Transport they are not lower standard strata roads. The views from this development are outstanding. Phase 2 will be 16 bare land strata lots (SS-SUB-2002.7). See below for public info on phase 2.

See the video I shot of this area a few years ago;

Here is a map of the area with lot numbers on it.

The lots have a building scheme attached to the titles.  Building Scheme. Building schemes stay in play for ever however one would probably have to go in front of a judge to enforce it.

The wells on the development do not seem to have well tags. I would recommend always getting a independent pump test and full water analysis.

Overall this is one of the best value for ones money buying on Salt Spring. Most of the lots are sold some are not.

Video of the Salt Spring Slasher that happens once a year on the road in the area.  It’s something to see but probably not try.
