Portion of Terrace Mountain trail to be closed Saturday morning

Four loads of gravel are being helicoptered one kilometre up the Terrace Mountain bike trail to address muddy sections of the trail

As long as the fog burns off early, a portion of the Terrace Mountain bike trail will be closed to the public tomorrow morning to allow for trail maintenance.

Four loads of gravel will be long-lined up the mountain to address some of the muddy sections of the mountain biking trail, said Terrace Off Road Cycling Association’s Tara Irwin. A section of the trail will be closed to the public between 9:30 and 11 a.m.

“It depends on how much fog there is in the morning as to whether we will be successful in getting this done, so hopefully the fog burns off early,” she said.

“We will have volunteers on either side of where the gravel will be slinged in, which is at about one kilometre up the Terrace mountain bike trail,” she said.

Canadian Helicopters is donating the helicopter airtime, and Terrace Redi-mix supplied the bags for slinging, she added.
