FYI: There will be a lot of heavy machines working on the new bridge at the Alpine Trails gate over the next few weeks. Contractors have asked for trail users stay out of this area during this time and instead use the trail head at the Visitors Center to access the Mt. Proctor trails (Swine Flu, Mad Cow, Far Side, Fairy Creek, etc.).
Can't wait for 'new bridge' day!
The FTA started has started the Lazy Lizard connector to Stove Trail. This is a big for this year that we had applied for to BC Parks over one year ago. This is Phase 5 of the Lazy Lizard Trail and involves about 2 kilometers of tree falling, brush cutting, excavator digging and numerous Thursday night FTA trail crew work parties. We have budgeted $20,000 for this project but need to raise more to complete it. Last year the Thunder Ridge Fundraiser netted $10,000 for this project and it was matched with another $10,000 from RMI funds. See the link for more information.
