This greenway was once a busy transportation route for moving coal and trees to markets. From 1888 to the 1950s it served as the Wellington Colliery Railway to carry coal from Cumberland via Royston to the docks in Union Bay. After the tracks were removed it became the Van West Road for logging operations between Royston and Cumberland. The regional district purchased it for a trail in 2014.
