The RCA Board would like to thank all of you for adhering to the Caribou Closure on the Frisby Ridge trail and officially announce that the trail is open and in great shape. With the early spring and low rain fall levels the trail is snow free, except for a small patch at the high point, and almost mud free. Thanks to Stella-Jones Inc. the road was graded this spring so it's [...]

On June 28, four brave souls came out to our final volunteer trail maintenance session for the early season despite the heat. We re-built the A-frame structure on Tantrum close to the Super Happy Fun trail intersection. It was a fun little project to work on. The A-frame is now 3 feet wide and we are hoping that more riders will try out this super fun feature. We got to witness the first person [...]
There is a Mt. Macpherson volunteer trail day coming up Sunday, June 28th at 9 am.

Stella-Jones has started logging the little patch of blowdown on Boulder. We don’t anticipate this taking very long. However, please bear in mind that there is active logging and there will be the occasional loaded logging trucks coming down the Boulder / Jordan FSR. The road is radio controlled, so a radio with the “Kicking Horse 153.32 MHz” frequency is legally required to use the road during active logging. Stella-Jones will let us know [...]
As with every year the Frisby Ridge XC Trail remains CLOSED until July 15th due to being situated in sensitive Caribou habitat. Furthermore, significant trail damage can result from riding this trail while it is still snowy and wet which it typically is this early in the year. Please respect the Caribou and the trail by adhering to this closure. *This does not affect the Ultimate Frisby DH Trail.

A splendid effort by ten willing volunteers resulted in re-built bridges on two trails: River Run and Richard Liqueur. Both trails were in dire need of some love and attention especially with regards to bridging tricky wet spots so get out and enjoy those trails and be sure to thank any volunteers you encounter. A big thanks also goes to Recreation Sites & Trails BC for providing the wood for the re-construction.
