Tracks planned as part of development in Quigley Canyon
After five years of work in Croy Canyon, the Blaine County Recreation District expects to start work cutting a new network of trails in Quigley Canyon this week, breaking ground on what will become its primary Nordic park in the south valley.
The goal is to greet the 2018-19 Nordic season with 10 to 15 kilometers of groomed terrain, according BCRD Executive Director Jim Keating. Trail crews are also starting work on a 4- to 5-mile summer trail around the perimeter of the canyon, which will eventually be open to hikers, bikers and horseback riders.
“The landowners in Croy are amazing folks—they allowed us access to their properties for many years,” Keating said. “But those land-use agreements were not in perpetuity.
