– A newly completed section of Ribbon creek. –
One of my favourite trails, Ribbon creek, is reborn after being destroyed by the 2013 floods. Thanks to Alf for this report, and thanks to all the volunteers who are helping to bring this wonderful trail back to life. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to hear this. More photos from Alf
Good news for anyone who enjoyed the Ribbon Creek Valley. The re-building of the Ribbon Creek trail in now underway and we should be able return again for hiking this fall and skiing this winter!
Work is currently happening on the narrower part of the trail from the Kovach Link junction to Ribbon Falls. The lower section requires bigger machinery and several huge bridges…and Fisheries regulations do not permit work in/along the stream until mid-August.
There is currently a big Parks trail crew, 3 track hoe excavators and teams of Friends of Kananaskis Country volunteers working on the trail re-build. Most of the trail is being re-routed onto higher, drier ground. It sure looks as if it will be a more aesthetic and sustainable trail.
