October 21, 2014  Work is set to begin on rebuilding a 15-plus kilometer section of the Douglas Trail between Port Douglas and Sachteen. The $150,000 project is a partnership between the Indigenous Work Force, the Xa'xtsa (Douglas) and In-SHUCK-ch Nations and the New Pathways to Gold Society. The project will see half the ancient First Nation-Gold Rush Trail between Port Douglas and Pemberton cleared and upgraded in 2014.Work will include clearing vegetation and improving the trail tread. Interpretive signage will also be installed. Plans to complete the remaining half of the trail in 2015–16 are in the works.
