WBC Trail Projects for 2017
The 2017 West Bragg Creek trail construction season will focus on four main projects:
- Construction of the final links to complete the Trans-Canada Trail through the West Bragg Creek trail network. This includes work on Iron Creek, an Iron Creek to Boundary Ridge connector and work on Moose Loop to Tom Snow trail.
- Construction of Kestrel. This is a new trail that connects the north tip of Merlin View with the re-built section of Tom Snow trail and Highway #68. This spectacular route will allow people to connect all the way through to Dawson Trailhead and Cox Hill Trail.
- New trail connections from the trailheads at the upgraded WBC parking lot to all of the existing trails. One of these new trails is an interpretive trail sponsored by the Elbow River Watershed Partnership.
- Upgrades and repairs to the existing trail network. This includes work on Snakes & Ladders, Strange Brew, Ranger Summit, Boundary Ridge and a new Sugar Mama bridge. On the XC ski trails, there are drainage upgrades at a number of sites, plus widening of the Loggers Loop bridge.
