View Full Version : Trip Planning...Need Some Direction

March 4th, 2014, 09:56 AM
Our group is planning a big final ride and we want to go up there, on Saturday, so we'll miss the big club ride. Want to stage in Barrhead, but can't find the staging area location. Can someone point me in the right direction, or is it best to stage at Vega?
I also want to know if there is an ice crossing to get to the Vega sand hills on the west side of the river?

The staging area in town is directly east of the RCMP / Fire Department. We share the truck parking lot. At Vega , parking is on the side of the road , so it depends how many vehicles are in your group.
I know there is an ice crossing located on the Trans- Canada trail , not sure what other crossings may be around there.

Our trail system doesn't cross the athabasca river to get into the ohv rec area. On the trail map link I have posted you can see the staging areas. Hope this helps

I have a copy of the map, one of the better ones for local trail systems by the way. Thanks for the info!
