      The Mt. Cartier recreation trail has been used for many years as a great early season mt. bike ride, it is one of the first trails to melt out in the spring. More recently, the potential of this trail has begun to show itself…the hardiest of riders are riding up it to the summit of Mt. Cartier, and the more adventurous and getting a heli-drop at the summit and down-hilling it! The summit views are all time!
