This summer our trail construction program is focused on completing the Trans-Canada Trail through West Bragg Creek. The Iron Creek segment has been completed and is ready to use. The trail continues west from the end of the Bragg Creek-Rocky View portion of the Trans-Canada Trail. It begins with by winding through a mature spruce forest and over three new bridges. The next 2 km is cross country ski trail width to a junction with Iron Springs trail. This segment will be groomed for XC skiing, fat-biking and snowshoeing in the winter. At the Iron Springs junction, a 600m single-track trail takes you to Boundary Ridge Trail.
With the completion of Iron Creek trail, you can now ride, hike or ski from the Trans-Canada Trail along Range Road 54 all the way to the West Bragg Creek parking lot.
Another important link in the Trans-Canada Trail is the Kestrel Trail, which goes north from Merlin View Loop to the re-built Tom Snow Trail. It’s still under construction. So, if you want to see Kestrel before it opens, you are going to have to join a volunteer trail day!
