CNC – Long Loop Trail Building
August 22, 2020 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
CANMORE NORDIC CENTRE – LONG LOOP TRAIL BUILD
Help build your local trail community! The new Long Loop trail build at the Canmore Nordic Centre will be located between the Rundle and Meadowview ski trails and is designed to be challenging and fun with lots of elevation changes. It will be constructed predominately to blue square difficulty with numerous black diamond sections that will have ride-around options built in.
WHAT TO EXPECT
As a new trail build, the level of effort will range from medium to difficult and include hand tool work such as digging a new trail, removing duff and earth with picks and pulaskis, and shoveling/raking out rutting.
PLEASE NOTE: Access to the project will be via bike! Be prepared to ride ~4km on gravel/dirt road, including some uphill sections.
Friday July 10 and July 12
Every second Saturday, starting July 11, 2020
(July 11, 25 – August 8, 22 –Sept 5, 19)
MEETING LOCATION & TIME
We’ll meet by the large trail map sign outside the west end of the Nordic Centre daylodge (opposite Trail Sports). Meeting times will vary pending the project date and location. You’ll be notified in the reminder email for the trail day you’ve signed up for.
Note: Should weather not cooperate and we need to cancel, we will notify you by email around 12pm the day before the event.
