Temporary Trail Closures at South Canoe – Lumpy

Canoe Forest Products will be falling road right-of-way adjacent to the Lumpy Mtn Bike trail (next to the ‘gap jump’) which entails closing Lumpy this Thursday and Friday (May 3rd and 4th) and possibly Monday May 7th.  Riders are asked to respect the closer from 6am to 3pm on these days. The closure will be taken down as soon as the works are complete.  These works will not have any impact on the Salty Dog race or the high school XC at the end of May.
