      The Mount Cartier recreation trail has been used for many years as a great early season mountain bike ride. The lower section 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/pushing up to the summit of Mount Cartier and the more adventurous are getting a heli-drop to the summit and down-hilling it.The summit views are all time
