Snowmobile Club upgrades trails and cabins

The Houston Snowmobile Club is improving snowmobile trails around Houston, including the Dungate, Sibola, and Telkwa Range trails.

The Houston Snowmobile Club is improving snowmobile trails around Houston.

The Dungate, Sibola, and Telkwa Range trails were fixed up and upgraded this summer and fall, thanks to a $12,500 grant from Northern Development Initiative Trust (NDIT), as well as funding from the Bulkley Valley Credit Union, Dungate Community Forest and Recreation Sites and Trails.

Snowmobile Club added new siding, paint, windows and a new wood stove to the cabin on the Dungate Meadows trail.

They brushed 35 kilometres of the Dungate trail, did some preservation work at the trail base and replaced some signs.

On the Sibola or Rhineridge trial, the Houston and Burns Lake clubs partnered to re-deck four bridges and brush 2.5 kilometres of the trail.

“This area is used by many and maintained by both clubs that share a cabin there as well,” said Les Auston, Houston Snowmobile Club Secretary.

The Houston volunteers also worked on the Telkwa Range Trail, doing some brushing, putting up new signs and upgrading the cabin.

“A huge thank you to all those involved,” Auston said.

These benefits will also ride into the summer, when trails are used for biking, all-terrain vehicles and hiking.
