A new multi-purpose trail for Huntsville is in the works thanks to a joint partnership between Hidden Valley Highlands Ski Area, the Huntsville Mountain Bike Association (HMBA), and the Town of Huntsville.
Huntsville Council approved the agreements at its August 24 council meeting. The 3.4-kilometre trail will be built and maintained by HMBA and its difficulty level is considered intermediate.
The trail, once created, would be open from May 1 to October 31.
“I’m so thrilled that we have this before us and… I certainly am supporting it,” said Deputy Mayor Nancy Alcock.
Councillor Jason FitzGerald, who said he was involved in a minor role trying to get the trail to happen, called it a great example of partnerships the Town can get involved in to further recreation opportunities for the community.
Council unanimously approved the initiative.
