Hello everybody. I just took a job in Cranbrook and packed up the whole dam family, switched provinces and took the plunge. So far most everyone is friendly however there does not seem to be alot of actual wheeling trails around here. There seems to be lots of mines/logging roads to keep a person quite busy but as far as technical wheeling trails I can't seem to find any.

Please don't tell me I moved from the prairies only to have to go back to the Crowsnest Pass to get my wheeling fix.:dontknow:

Thanks for the directions, which side of Yahk are you talking about? I've got a place to stay there when exploring.

Grab a backroad mapbook... the whole area is littered with logging roads, many of them unused and overgrown. I used to just pull off on to random forestry roads up there and see where they went. Only problem is most of them are snowed in half the year so nows the time to explore.

Welcome... I'm a prairie boy too and will be movin to Cranbrook next year... Make sure if you do find some trails, to keep in touch with me, I'll be wantin to tag along as well as show the ones I have found along the way... There are tons of little trails that shoot off of fsr's all over the place out there. Lazy Lake is supposed to have some fun little trails in the area too, doesnt look too crazy tho.

That's the best advice right there.....or Google Earth...

I have found some pretty darn good hunting spots thus far with both of these tools:cool:
