Trail Upgrade Approvals

We all ride the trails for the same reasons. We share a passion for mountain biking and being in the outdoors.

As guests of the trails, we need to respect the work that has gone into building a positive relationship with the landowners who allow us the privilege of building and riding trails on their property. The Sault Cycling Club works with the landowners of the various properties at Hiawatha Highlands ensuring that the proper process of making upgrades to the trails is followed to allow for continued access and safety for users.

The below picture is an example of what NOT to do on the trails. A rider(s) took parts of an old bridge that had been removed and placed it over a downed tree. It was not secured or installed properly and posed a safety risk to other riders. We ask that you please do not take it upon yourself to make changes to the trails without approval.

*️⃣ THE GOOD NEWS IS, WE CAN GET APPROVAL FOR TRAIL UPGRADES!! *️⃣ We are always looking for ways to improve our trails! If you have an idea and want to help turn it into reality, contact Peter or another member of the SCC Executive to discuss it. A great example of this in action are the new Bert and Ernie sections connecting Sesame Street and Stickman Drive. Gord had an idea, we asked for landowner permission, and now we’re riding! 😃

If you’d like to get involved in trail maintenance or building, please reach out to our Trail Director, Peter Henry. Peter@saultcyclingclub.ca
