Last year, HHA notified the City that the gravel shoulder along 128th Ave, near Fern Crescent, is unstable and dangerous for equestrians. This segment was Trans-Ridge Trail on the old maps, but has been repurposed by the City for traffic heading to Golden Ears Provincial Park. The gravel shoulder is especially unstable at the east corner, across from the trail entrance to the South Alouette River (aka “Killer Crossing”).
HHA was recently notified that, since the gravel shoulder will never be stabilized to support horses safely, the municipality has created a new trail segment to divert horse traffic along a safer route. This new north-south connector starts near the intersection of 128 Ave with Mill Street and runs south to 127B Ave. See the satellite view map (new trail marked in yellow).
Horse crossing signs have been installed on 128 Avenue, on either side of the intersection with Mill Street, as well.
