New bike trail opens

After nearly two years of work, the newest mountain-bike trail at Penticton’s Three Blind Mice area has opened.

Upper Neverland is a 3.2 kilometre climbing-only extension of the original Neverland trail, ending at the Reservoir Trailhead.

While the bulk of the trail building work was completed last year, the Penticton Area Cycling Association opted to keep the trail closed last year to allow it to firm up and rest under the snow.

“The final 600 metres was hammered in by a super dedicated crew of 20 or so volunteers fuelled only on ‘new trail excitement’ and copious beverages provided by our generous local sponsors,” a PACA web posts says.

Upper Neverland is slightly steeper and more technical than the original Neverland trail and is classified as blue difficulty.

The $60,000 project was funded in part by the City of Penticton, Western Canada Diversification Fund, RDOS and members. With the exception of the volunteer-built portion of trail, it was constructed by Cabin Forestry.

“We highly encourage everybody to go up and enjoy this climb (yes, it is possible to enjoy climbing),” PACA said.
