       Trail is good but I don't like the name. This trail has been there forever and often referred to as the Government Hill trail. I would have named it "Gov't Bomb" or something similar. If Alain invents a new drop in, then we can name it after him.

       This may be Edmonton's oldest existing trail. They started on Government House in 1906 and it is likely someone bombed down the hill, possibly on wooden rims, before then. The trail was popular in the 1920s and 30s.
