HMBA has submitted a proposal for Hinton's Participatory Budget. Hinton's amazing signature trail, Happy Creek, is going to need some major work done on all the bridges and wood features. This is not just a project that will benefit the mountain bikers, but it will benefit runners, walkers, hikers, and visitors who enjoy using this great trail!
If you are a Hinton or Yellowhead County (west of Obed) resident and over the age of 14 - PLEASE show your support by selecting our project on your vote!

HMBA's Project Name
Happy Creek Trail Maintenance
Fixing and replacing bridges and wooden features on Happy Creek Trail. We are requesting the funds to bring in wood, machinery, tools, and workers to fix current wooden features on this trail. Safety is paramount with the Hinton Mountain Bike Association, and much time, funding and dedication have already been invested in this trail. Our community of users will be disgruntled if this trail and its features is left impassable and is left to rot. This is a trail used, not only by mountain bikers, but also by walkers, hikers and runners. It is a great example of Hinton's trail system. This is a project that encompasses much more than a single user group and is a draw to visitors stopping in our community.
