With the recent storm many trails are in need of maintenance and clearing. There is a lot of chatter on social media about the areas in need of clearing. Thank-you for all the comments and volunteer help.
To consolidate all our efforts, would everyone please document the damage, and all clearing efforts on Trailforks by commenting on the specific trail within the trail network.
We can then mark trails as clear or in need of maintenance, and volunteers can be respond to trails in need of work more efficiently.
Thank-you everyone for getting out there and getting our trails back in shape!
Beginning next week (Nov. 20th, 2015) Red Rider on Red Mountain in Mission will be CLOSED for logging. Caswell Trail is currently closed and is under active logging.
Access will still be available to Upper Momentum via the Lower (southern) Red Rider connector from the road. Black Tie and Lower Momentum are unaffected. Forestry will reinstate the affected trails once harvesting is complete, and will be reforesting the area in March 2016.
For your safety, please respect these closures, and stay out of the closed areas.

Check out this proposal. PDF page 191 will give you an overview of the proposed summer trail systems.

Logging operations are back in effect at the Woodlot in Maple Ridge.
If you are planning to ride in the area, please heed all warning signs and stay out of closed areas. Riding these areas is a privilege and our respectfulness is key to maintaining this area as a riding area for years to come.
Please be advised of the daily trail closure (7am to 5pm) on the skidder connector trail between the 287th street parking area and the five corners junction. This is the only trail that will be affected and we would please ask recreational users to utilize the alternative route along the woodlot main to access the downhill mountain bike trails.
This closure of the main access trail is expected to continue through to the end of September.

Due to the recent weather and environmental concerns in the Lower Mainland, Team That’s What She Said has had to make the tough decision to postpone the event. Trail building with or without power tools is banned until further notice in our area and this coupled with the excessively dry conditions raise concerns about our shred’tastic trail network. Plus all that man’teer heat is sure to spark something! Trail and forest preservation as well as volunteer and participant safety are very important to us as organizers.
