Rock Band was a trail added to the Happy Creek Trail system in Spring of 2016 in the form of a short but sweet 0.6 km technical downhill trail option (Difficulty rating: Advanced (black)). Read about the initial build here. The last 70m of this trail went through a low-lying area and the above-average accumulation of rain in the Summer of 2016 made it clear that we needed to find a solution for this wet section, dubbed "Shrek's Swamp".
In the Spring of 2017, the Hinton Mountain Bike Association applied for the Hinton Community Grant and was awarded $2,035 to build a boardwalk for Rock Band.
Thanks to the contributions of many volunteers in the past few months, the donation of lumber from West Fraser Mills Ltd., and the Hinton Community Grant, a long, winding technical feature was added to Rock Band's song.
There is still a short section to complete to make it perfect, but it's definitely good to Rock'ON as is. Many thanks to all the awesome volunteers who made this happen - over 75 hours of volunteer time was put into this project!
Thank you West Fraser Mills Ltd, Hinton Divison and the Town of Hinton for your contributions and support!
