Razor’s Edge Trail
August 24, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
RAZOR’S EDGE TRAIL
Let’s get back to work on the Razor’s Edge trail project! This is our third year of constructing 1.9 km of new trail to connect Razor’s Edge with the Quaite Valley Connector. We’ve completed 600 m of trail and aim to build 500m in 2019. If you like building new trails, you will really enjoy working on this project which has a flare of slab, grade variation, and interesting flow. This is a Canmore Trail Alliance-led project however we encourage FKC volunteers to come out as well!
