Construction has started today on the much needed enlargement of the West Bragg parking area. The area will be closed until April 1st, then parking will be limited during the main construction period construction to 80-90 parking spots. The majority of the work will be completed by June 30th, with a small amount of work done in the Fall. There may be occasional closures, so check with Alberta Parks Advisories before heading out.
The new parking area will have 475 parking spots, 2 dedicated bus parking spots and 8 pull-through equestrion parking lanes. For more information see the Alberta Parks website.
Alberta Parks encourages trail users to explore other areas during the construction period. You can access the West Bragg Creek trail system from Allen Bill Day Use and Fullerton Day Use in the Elbow Valley, along Highway 66. They also encourage experienced downhill mountain bike riders to explore the Moose Mountain Area. Unfortunately, the Moose Mountain Road does not open until May 15th—maybe they will open it earlier this year if conditions permit?
