Build Your Community

If you’ve been craving some new single track, these tasty morsels will whet your pallet. But if your appetite for ribbons of radness aren’t satisfied, fear not, there are more delectable goodies ready to be served.

“I’ve seen mountain bike rides transform people –
not just their bodies, but their way of thinking. Their spirit.”
Charlie Cunningham

Build your community – What is that? Building community is about people coming together with a common interest to create or enhance their community or area. Throughout the Spring the Canmore Trail Alliance has coordinated trail days every Thursday night and Saturday morning. Working with the amazing staff at the Canmore Nordic Centre, volunteers have done a ton of work to create new single track. Dedicated volunteers are showing up every week to build amazing new single track, but they’re also creating and enhancing community.

“I will not follow where the path may lead,
but I will go where there is no path, and I will leave a trail.”
Muriel Strode

Curious about what’s been built through trail days with the Canmore Trail Alliance in June?

Sherwood Forest Connector

The Sherwood Forrest connector is a brand new bit of single track that links from the original Sherwood to EKG avoiding old double track, boggy, and eroded connections with bad sight lines. The new trail offers a combination of flow and tech more consistent with the rest of Sherwood and work is almost complete for an optional long log ride if old-school North Shore wood is your thing.

EKG Connector

There’s a new single track connector for EKG at winter Junction #77. The new single track eliminates the less than inspired section of ski trail and creates some way better flow. An added benefit is that in winter many fat biker / skier conflicts will be avoided at this location.

Green Trail Connector

The new, yet to be named, green trail enters the forest at the west end of the Mine Meadow and connects with the new Odyssey Trail.
