Creation of Single Track Trails at Chickakoo Natural Area

225 Signatures Goal: 100

The Foundation for the Advocacy of Sustainable Single Track (FASST) is an organization of local cycling enthusiasts and trail runners who propose to buildmulti activity single track trails within the Chickakoo Lake Recreation Area to compliment the existing trails within the park. Single track trails will be designed for mountain bike riders, trail runners and snow shoe enthusiasts. Creation of single track trails through the Chickakoo area will provide an opportunity within Parkland County for local residents to enjoy more challenging terrain without travelling to destinations outside of Parkland County. We propose to develop and maintain multi-use single track trails in the Chickakoo Lake Recreation Area to appeal to mountain bikers, trail runners, walkers and snowshoers within the county. Other trail users will also benefit from the development of single track trails through reduced user conflict on existing trails.

We propose to create new opportunities for outdoor recreation within ChickakooLake Recreation Areaby creating new trails for single track outdoor activity seekers. Single track trails will be less than 60 cm wide and will not require clearing of large trees. By providing new trails we propose to increase the population dynamic that can enjoy the Chickakoo Lake Recreation Area. Increasing the trails available for non-motorized outdoor recreation will provide Parkland County with an area that can be used to increase social enjoyment of natural areas while improving fitness opportunities within the County. Single track development willhelp promote an active lifestyle for residents of Spruce Grove, Stony Plain and Parkland County through the use of a non motorized, minimal disturbance trail system.
