Mount Boucherie Rush Mountain Bike Trail
City of West Kelowna
Designed and constructed a 4 km long blue square rated mountain bike climbing trail from East Boundary Rd to the summit of Mt. Boucherie. The trail traversed very challenging terrain and soils, some sensitive ecosystems, and 1st Nations cultural heritage resource sites. The trail team completed this project on time under very difficult conditions in the extreme heat of an Okanagan summer.
Challenge: Slopes were predominantly > 50% and the soils were thin veneers over bedrock and loose cobble, with the occasional talus slope to traverse.
Solution: Patience and safe working procedures were crucial in the success of this project.
