This Closure of this trail will affect my club and many other in the north, this will affect D-13 and D-15 as we also get the traffic going around, 75% or more of the riders we had this winter where people doing the Big loop.
I was told the reason why the |District decided to close that trail was because the Foleyet club no longer exists and they had one guy running a groomer all winter but no trail passes were sold.... I can understand why they are doing it, its a big section of trail to maintain, with no Foleyet club in the center to take care of the trail it give a lot more work for both club of both sides. I hope there can be a good solution to this, I'm sure the OFSC will work hard on this over the season to we can have this trail back for next season that is 8 months away. We need to let the OFSC and D-14 about how this will affect our trails riding next winter, please comment on my blog and facebook page they do read my stuff, we need to get the word out about this, we need to show that people do care about this loop and that we need it.
It's going to be a busy summer trying to find a solution for this, I will keep you posted about this over the next few weeks and over the summer.
