    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! Clearcutting Kananaskis MTB Trails

    For all of you that enjoy riding in the Kananaskis wild, check out the logging plan that's proposed to take place on top of the most extensive trail network in the province. Half of the plan has been completed and now they're expanding the plan to cover even more area.

    info: NEW SLS Logging Plan - Bragg Creek & Kananaskis Outdoor Recreation

    If you disagree with this plan, please take a moment and sign the petition and write your MLA's:

    Stop Clearcut Logging in West Bragg Creek - Kananaskis Country

    Petition signed and forwarded to everyone I know. It would be a travesty to lose important parts of this amazing multi-use recreation area to clear cutting.
    Screw the chairlift, I'm riding to the top. You're all worthless and weak!!!

    As far as I know no trails will be "lost"....some will be closed during logging...all trails will be restored...

    Just trying to keep everything straight forward.

    Did you read the information in the web page? It appears that the earlier plan that would have mitigated the impact on the area is being side-stepped by Spray Lakes Sawmills without public consultation, and they have expanded the area to be logged beyond what the public is aware of (unless I'm misreading it).

    I would rather not see them anywhere near that area. Can't see them "Restoring" trails to the way they were. Those trails/rides are epic. Petition signed.
