Volunteers and trail crew have been busy over the last month making sure the network is in tip-top shape for all the summer riding that will be coming its way. Plenty of trails have been topped up with gold dirt to keep them running smoothly, drainage has been improved for rainy days, and rock armouring and ladder bridges have been implemented and revamped in several key spots to promote the long-term health of the trails and their surroundings.

Bobsled’s wooden bridge has been replaced with a dirt bridge

The new dirt bridge will make the popular trail more accessible for riders of all skill levels and abilities

Expresso had some of its berms rebuilt to keep the flow going all summer long

A new ladder bridge on Expresso will reduce damage to tree roots and improve flow

 Some of the Trail Days we’ve had this past month:

 Another update to the Seymour network includes the recently completed reroute on Dale’s Connector to improve trail connections with Upper Dale’s on Seymour. Learn more HERE

A new optional bypass was implemented on Severed to help riders around the steep section and improve accessibility to John Deer and Asian Adonis. Learn more HERE

Pangor had some of its older wood replaced with fresh cedar

Dale’s Trail got a brand new rock retaining wall and some fresh mineral soil to go with it

Ramps were topped up with dirt on Digger

Some of Expresso’s berms have been reinforced in the back and re-coated with fresh dirt

No boulder is too heavy for our volunteers!

Big thanks to the Run Wild Vancouver trail running group who came out to give some love and care to the Fromme Ascent trail!

Big thanks also to Ridgeline Events for their adoption and care for Bottletop! It was a great day of building as always!

If you see any any maintenance issues on the trails be sure to report it via Trailforks! It’s the best way to alert the builders of any work that needs to be done.
