Active Logging & Trail Closures

08/15/2021

Starting August 16th, 2021 and potentially lasting until October 2021, there will be a selective harvest of trees across a parcel of private land our trails cross:

Until further notice the following trails must be closed:

  • Tate Trail
  • Stunt Trail
  • BC Rocks
  • Flow Trail
  • Hammerhead Trail
  • Vietnam
  • The Quarry Trail
  • Power Line
  • All Ages

Potentially Island Run and Border Run will remain open however this depends on a few things.

First and foremost follow the signage you find in the forest.

Please!

This harvest means that essentially you cannot travel south from Currie tract excepting Island Run. All the previously mentioned trails will cross the private logging area where there are definite hazards and your presence creates problems and concern for the safety of the operation. Please adjust your rides and hikes accordingly.

Everybody’s co-operation with signage and their understanding that this is private land will help to keep the trails open.

Thank you,
HAFTA

Spring is a time of renewal and we at HAFTA are feeling the vibes with our new branding courtesy of Rich Auger from The PRFCT Line.

Thanks for your time Rich! We dig our new look and are looking forward to rolling it out into the real world. 🙂

Ride (Hike) Dirt, Not Mud

03/11/2021

Amazing weather, but now we’ve got a mud problem!

Please don’t use the trails when they’re soft and muddy. Their soil is exceptionally venerable during the freeze/thaw periods to displacement. Soil displacement is when soil gets pushed off the trail or excavated (ruts). That displacement permits water to ponding right on the trail and triggers further erosion.

If you come across a muddy section consider the slogan: Mud on heels or wheels, turn around. And if you think you can “cheat” conditions by riding or walking into the forest consider that you’re only making the problem worse as you trample the vegetation and widen the trail. Riding and walking on the edge of a muddy area tends to just make that muddy area wider (and harder to fix) better to step into the mud and take your licks for poor choices – The best option is to avoid muddy trails in the first place!

There are only a few weeks of the year where soil damage is a big problem for us and apparently we’re heading into them.

Thanks,
HAFTA
