The Moose Jaw Pavers along with our friends at Buffalo Pound Provincial Park are happy to let all trail users know that "Mus Nuckl", formerly "Short and Sweet" is open for business ! The trail was doubled in length from the original, begins off of Twister
at the upper East end, and terminates in a merge near the bottom of Jackpot
in a high visibility area near the drain/last berm. The trail is intended to be a downhill only route as it is much too steep in the upper half for mere mortals to climb. Keep in mind there may be a stray hiker every so often that makes his or her way up the trail, so please be alert. Mus Nuckl is a BLACK rated trail. There is one significant technical trail feature in place (a ladder bridge drop). Please be aware that a feature like the one on Mus Nuckl is for expert/advanced riders only. Always ride within your skill set please ! All trail features have a ride around option, so intermediate riders should certainly check it out too ! The addition of this route to the BP system is the first step toward real progress within the trail system. Going forward, a small committee will be in place that will take project requests to the Park authority for approval. This achievement in no way gives anyone the right or a free pass to tackle trail projects outside of the scope of Park approval. There was already unauthorized work conducted on Mus Nuckl even before the final approval came down. Going forward, any unauthorized work on the system should be reported, and anyone caught doing unapproved work risks a hefty fine, or worse. In the meantime, get out and ride Mus Nuckl ! Conditions are dry and slippery, but we test
rode it today and it was a blast ! The more traffic we get on the new trail the quicker the grass will wear away and help better define the trail. Mus Nuckl was trimmed quite wide, so it should help keep visibility high. Enjoy your video tour of Mus Nuckl hosted by Neil Barber! Neil put a lot of sweat into this trail and approached me this spring to help spearhead the approval process. Without Neil, Rob Walcer, or the cooperation of the Park Administration, we would not have been able to add this cool new trail to the map. Thanks guys !
