A new mountain biking trail has moved a step closer to reality as this week Merritt City Council approved a motion to provide a letter of support to the Merritt Mountain Bike Association.
The association is looking to build a new trail in the north bench lands and while the land is within the City of Merritt, it’s Crown Land. For that reason, the association is currently in the process of applying to the Crown for use of the land.
“I’m in full support of this,” began Coun. Bike Bhangu. “The more avenues of activity that we can provide to Merrittonians the better.”
The new trail, if approved by the Crown, has been described as a beginner level trail, which will run an approximate 3km loop.
