As the pressure on many of our beloved trail networks increases, so do requirements for scheduled maintenance and trail related amenities like parking, washrooms, kiosks, appropriate signage and garbage cans. This in turn presents its own set of challenges for the grassroots volunteer organization that is typically quarterbacking management of that very same local trail network.

Two weeks ago we hosted our second of three integrated land manager training workshops sponsored by Shimano Canada in Calabogie, ON, which used to boast lift access downhill mountain biking until the mid 2000s.

On June 7th, Mount Revelstoke National Park celebrated its centennial with the second annual “Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day” at the Nels Nelsen Historic Area in the park.

The RCMP, Flowt, and Parks Canada provided a jam-packed day for families with a children’s bicycle skills and obstacle course, bike and helmet checks, stickers, prizes, draws, bike information and refreshments. The event was a huge success with sunny skies and perfect temperatures.

Le Mont-Royal est un site de choix pour plusieurs citadins qui cherchent à prendre du recul de la jungle urbaine. Depuis plus de 20 ans, les cyclistes s'y promènent afin d'en découvrir tous les aspects, tous ces secrets. D'abord, le cycliste récréatif s'y promène sur le Ch. Olmstead, le sentier multifonctionnel principal qui permet de gravir la montagne selon les souhaits de Olmstead, l'architecte du parc, du bas vers le sommet.

IMBA Canada Trail Care Crew leaders AJ Strawson and Rachael Raven wrap up their time on the road and say goodbye!

For the past year and a half, AJ and I have travelled all across the country - visiting all of Canada's beautiful and unique provinces (plus the Yukon!), riding our bikes, building trails, and spreading the word about how mountain biking and singletrack make our communities better places to live.

It's no surprise that frontcountry trails get more attention than backcountry. It is tough to get out and monitor or assess backcountry routes, let alone get materials or people out to maintain them. So this week we took to Kejimkujik National Park and National Historic Site's 60km Liberty Loop to assess the condition of the trails and get the full park experience.

With a week off in the schedule before we are due to work back on the mainland, AJ and I found ourselves with time to explore Newfoundland's spectacularly beautiful Gros Morne National Park. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Park features amazing terrain and geology, including the second highest peak on the island.

Great trails take us to amazing locations. Away from civilization, roads, and the monotony of everyday life, our trails seek out vistas and lookouts, rivers and lakes, and rugged terrain deep in the wild.

But this can put us at odds with the power of mother nature, and the environment around us. By having minimal impact on our surroundings - exposing the terrain, rather than changing it - our trails are often vulnerable to storms, flooding, slides, or other changes to the ecosystem.
