Quarry Trail

My recollection is that Quarry Trail used to get plowed (at least sometimes) before the latest renovation. Am I misremembering?

In any case, it's currently *great* for fat-biking. Looks like it would be "engaging" on a CX bike...hasn't been plowed yet this winter as far as I can tell.

Not that i recall

I don't recall QT ever being plowed in the 15+ years that I've been cycle commuting. Often it gets beaten down into a rough track that can loosen molars, and later in the winter turns into a glacier with all the packing. The last few years I have (in the winter) detoured onto 12 Ave SW at 33 St, linking up with 24 St SW, then rejoining the river pathway at the Railway crossing below Shag.

Okay, thanks! I definitely rode it a lot a bunch of years ago on CX, but couldn't recall if it was plowed or just got packed down a lot ;)
