The Razor’s Edge Connector includes approximately 2 km of new trail between the Razor’s Edge and Quaite Valley Trails. The construction of this northwest connector will direct users off McConnell Ridge prior to its approach to the TransCanada Highway. The purpose of the connector trail is to increase public safety by moving people away from the busy highway and back to the trailhead via a new single-track trail. Building this connector is an important step in Alberta Environment and Parks recognizing Razor’s Edge as a designated trail. The entire project is approx 2km with 600m built to date (orange highlight in below map). We have a big objective for 2019 – aimed at building another 600m to get us out of the woods (purple circle in below map).
