Everybody loves Bacon

Exploring trail networks carry on the tradition of adrenalin-pumping adventure in the region. Whether walking, rolling or biking, trail networks are an asset to any community. They are multi-use, with many being accessible regardless of ability or skill level. Trails provide communities with recreation opportunities year-round.

On Canada Day, one of the newest mountain bike trails in the region opened in Valemount. Designed to help beginner riders improve their skills, the trail, “Bacon includes a few features that also appeal to advanced riders. When asked why they chose ‘Bacon’ as the trail name, Curtis Pawliuk, General Manager of Valemount Area Recreation Development Association (VARDA) responded, “Because it’s just that good.”

“Our new Flow Trail has provided a high quality outdoor experience that can be enjoyed by riders of all skill levels. Bacon acts as an introductory, low risk option for newer riders to gain experience needed to ride larger and more advance trails…its also super fun for experienced riders as well!”

Contributions to Valemount Area Recreation Development Association for mountain biking through our Community Halls and Recreation Facilities program have now passed the $50,000 mark.
