Starting early next week, Mcintosh Trailworks will begin trail development work in South Quesnel Park.
The project includes three non-motorized, multi-purpose trails throughout the park and a pump track in a portion of the field off of Quesnel Hydraulic Road. A pump track is a circuit of rollers, banked turns and features designed so that cyclists can generate momentum without pedalling. The pump track is designed to meet the needs of new and young riders.
All three trails and the pump track will be built to International Mountain Bicycling Association’s Whistler Trail Standards, which focuses on the needs of multiple user groups and takes safety, environmental and geographical factors into account.
Please be aware there will be small machines in the park during the development of the trails. Signage will be posted, and some areas park may be closed during different stages of development.
The playground area off Neighbour Road will not be impacted and will remain open throughout the construction of the new trails and pump track. The project is expected to be completed by the end of October.
This project is funded by Northern Development Initiative Trust and Gas Tax Fund.
