Working on Waterton’s trails was dirtier than usual in 2018!

Since the spring, our trail crew has worked to repair damaged and destroyed infrastructure and assessed, cut and cleared fallen and burned trees to reopen over 50 km of previously closed trails.

Loose ash and dirt resulting from the Kenow Wildfire along with reduced shade in fire-affected areas made the work more challenging.

Parks Canada colleagues from Jasper National Park provided a much appreciated helping hand in June!
