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:
• Dale’s Trail w/ NS Ride

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!
