The Fernie Trails Crew has been busy clearing out the Coal Discovery Trail the past two weeks. This weekend we used Bighorn Helicopters to sling in 5 loads of bridge beams and decking and built two of three bridges going in on 2 kilometers of new single-track. The cross-country single-track now goes northward nine kilometers towards Hosmer. Can return on Ridgemont Road or on the Hosmer Powerline 4 X 4 road.

This section of trail will be used by over 500 cyclists during the TransRockies stage race in August.
