New Gravel on the Banded Peak Trail

Many thanks to Bragg Creek Excavating for the successful completion of the re-gravel project on the Banded Peak Trail between the Banded Peak School and the Bragg Creek Community Centre.  Also many thanks to Rocky View County for providing $10,000 in funding towards this project.

The GBCTA hopes that trail users will find the new fine gravel trail surface an improvement.
