    Sanctioned Trail Win in Gatineau Park, Ottawa

    Good news: over 100km of currently unsanctioned trail in Gatineau Park will be made part of the official network. Some will be hiking only, but a good portion of it will be open to mountain bikes. In addition, many of the existing official hiking-only trails will be opened to mountain bike:

    Responsible trail management in Gatineau Park | National Capital Commission

    Many favourite and currently unsanctioned or hiker-only trails may be opened to mountain biking under the plan. Trails such as the 60 and 70-series snowshoe trails, Happy Valley/Connector, The Brazillian, Skyline, MO, Foreplay, Powerline....

    This is a big win for the Ottawa Mountain Bike Association (OMBA), which has been working with the NCC on this initiative over the last several years.

    I'm not part of the OMBA executive -- just a member -- but I had to share. This is big news for Ottawa and Gatineau area riders. It's been a long time coming.

    Great news! I've been there a few times, was always afraid to venture onto the unsanctioned trails due to fear of what happens if you get caught!
