The section of the Lazy Lizard trail from approximately 3km to 4km is still quite wet. We are moving forward with a project to armor it, but it will take some time. If you ride this section of the trail please GIVE THE TRAIL a BREAK and WALK the WET SPOTS. The rest of the trail is quite good. Momma Moose is still around and still gets aggitated with people and dogs. Please keep your dog under control/leashed and give her and her baby lots of space if you see her.
Jemi Fibre is currently logging on their private land in the Fernie area. You have likely noticed some changes to the trail network. The Fernie Trails Alliance (FTA) has been closely working with Jemi Fibre to make sure their operations run smoothly and cause little disruption to our trails. Jemi has been very observant of the amount of trail usage and is conscious of trail user groups. It’s rare in these circumstances that the logging area is open for recreational use whilst operations are in process. However, Jemi are keeping their land open so we can enjoy the trails. With this in mind, its upsetting and frustrating for the FTA, Jemi Fibre and other responsible trail users to find out that several criminal incidents have taken place, including vandalism towards Jemi Fibre’s machinery. Jemi has suffered significant financial loss as well as lost days of work.
FTA is offering $1000 for information leading to the conviction of those responsible for the vandalism. Jemi has agreed to match us for a total reward of $2000. Please contact Julie Kelly email@example.com with any information.
