The trails received a little bit of snow but not enough to say hurray ! so we will implement the following changes:
Teams size Limit:
– 30 miles: 8 dogs sleds, 2-4 dogs skijorers
– 10 miles: 6 dogs sleds, 1-2 dogs skijorers
– 6 miles: 4 dogs sleds, 1-2 dogs skijorers, 1-2 dogs others – starting in that order.
30 miles and 10 miles trail update:
The 30 Miles will take the direction of Annie Lake and head back:
Leave from the Mount Lorne Community Centre and go out on the golf course, cross the golf course and go through a section of bush trail, which leads you onto McConnell lake, cross the lake. Go through the woods for about a mile and then onto the Pope Road. Keep an eye out for vehicles and go 1 mile down the road and turn right on the Alligator Road. Follow this trail to the first main intersection and go left towards Annie Lake (Carbon Hill trail). Do NOT go straight ahead/right towards Alligator Lake. You will cross the Watson River and later you will cross a creek. At this crossing take the bypass trail on the right (when going out) as the regular crossing is still open. After about 12 miles cross Annie Lake Road and head out on the lake. Go around the lake CLOCKWISE then go back across the road and follow the same trail back.
The 10 miles will take the direction of Mary Lake and head back:
Leave the Mount Lorne Community Centre and go out on the golf course, turn right going like if going to the Mc Connell lake loop, but turn right before climbing the hill to reach the train tracks. Cross the tracks and turn left following the only trail, go up a ridge and turn right at the sign “keep right”, stay right and go downhill. At the bottom, stay left and climb the hill back up, and come back the same trail.
Be aware that because of the changes, trail distances may vary.
Refer to the event description for any other information. Please bring cash for registration, food and drinks. The new DPSAY t-shirts will also be available for purchase at $15 each.
See you Sunday !
