TRAIL DAY CALL OUT – VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!
CANMORE NORDIC CENTRE – ILIAD TRAIL BUILD
Help build your local trail community! The new Iliad trail build at the Canmore Nordic Centre will be located between the Rundle and Meadowview ski trails and is designed to be challenging and fun with lots of elevation changes. It will be constructed predominately to blue square difficulty with numerous black diamond sections that will have ride-around options built in.
WHAT TO EXPECT
As a new trail build, the level of effort will be medium and include hand tool work such as brushing vegetation to clear the trail corridor, digging and refining the new trail, removing duff and earth with picks and , and shoveling/raking out rutting.
PLEASE NOTE: Access to the project will be via bike! Be prepared to ride ~4km on gravel/dirt road, including some uphill sections. Volunteers must provide their own bike.
