GBCTA Trail Talk – Nov 2017 – Published in High Country News

Trans Canada Trail (TCT) – Phases 2/3 Update The West Bragg Creek portion of the Great Trail (formerly the Trans-Canada Trail) is now largely complete. There is now safe passage along the West Bragg Creek road to walk, bike or ride your horse from the hamlet to Kananaskis Country.

Important Note to WBC Trail Users

The occurrence of an accident with one of our volunteers earlier this autumn has necessitated a suspension of volunteer activities by the GBCTA. This means that we won’t be able to use volunteers to either clear deadfall from the trails after the recent wind events or to pack and track the beautiful snow that has just fallen. We are working hard with Parks and Public Lands to get back into action as soon as possible [...]

Please check the trail report before going out for yellow and red flags and please avoid areas that could be damaged.  Mountain road remains ok for all users as are multi user trails with green flags.

WBC TCT Phases 2/3 is not yet open for horseback riding

The trail is not expected to be firm enough for horse back riding until the summer of 2018. The trail still needs additional compaction by both our contractor and Mother Nature. The GBCTA intends to develop and implement an etiquette policy for the entire WBC TCT from the Hamlet of Bragg Creek to West Bragg [...]
