2015 - Raspberry Stinger
Our first new trail completed was Raspberry Stinger in 2015. From mid-July to November, almost 700 volunteer hours were spent working on the trail. We had two one day work-bees, trail building nights once a week, and many other hours spent building by a small group of dedicated volunteers. The SemCAMS, Shell Deep Basin and Weyerhaeuser groups came out for work bee days to help with this trail.
Raspberry Stinger is done and officially open! Please go and take a spin on the new trail. Thank you so much to all the volunteers that came out for many hours to make this happen!
