The Minister of Fisheries and Land Resources, Gerry Byrne announced on Friday an extension to the Western Sno-Riders Trail Network that will enable snowmobile operators to access trails in the western region without having to bypass the City of Corner Brook.
Construction will commence on a four-kilometre trail section from Lundrigan Drive to Watson’s Pond Road.
The new trail will allow snowmobilers to bypass boggy and rocky sections of the existing trail.
Improved ability to groom the new section of trail is expected to extend the snowmobiling season by three to four weeks. The new trail will also offer multi-purpose use for all-terrain vehicles, mountain bikes, and hikers in the off-season
Construction of the new trail section is expected to be completed before the upcoming snowmobile season.
