Summary:
ATV trails around a beaver pond. This trail network is in the Localride.net guide, too, but the character has changed since the guide was published 4 years ago. All we found were trails ripped up by ATVs, and a creek that was too deep to ford. There was a trail leading up the other side of this creek.

The trails there are typical of OHV trails - steep chutes and drops, and they are not packed smooth. DO NOT ride after a rain.

Recommended Route:
Couldn't find any of the technical trails. Don't bother unless you really like exploring. Might be better if we could have crossed the creek.

Other recommended trails in the same area:

Summary:
I have explored the trail and I like it. My family owns the river quarter to the north and I am very open to mountain bike trails being developed there. There are some amazing gullies that can be developed. However, the trails MUST be made in such a way that quads and snowmobiles CANNOT access the land. If they can I will be forced to ban any riders. There are some existing trails but they are low intensity as they were made with a cat years ago and are used by snowmobiles off the river to my outrage. The high cliffs along the river are on this land.
The bush from Hewitt Estates that separates the upper houses from the bottom houses flows right into the bush on my land. The property extends across the river up to Nywenning Estates and is accessed from Crowsnest Road that comes off of Highway 28 at the bottom of Lewis Hill. That side of the river is small and we farm the fields that exist there so there are far fewer options to make trails and they cannot be accessed from Hewitt Estates because of the river.

People interested in extending trails from Hewitt Estates should email me at zanelewis@gmail.com

Summary:
The futher you get into the trails the more rooted and technical it gets. If you find me or one of the locals they can show you chutes and the new trails. As of June 20th 2000 the local mt. bike community will begin grooming all of the trails and building new stuff. I ride these almost every day.

Recommended Route:
Since I live across from the trails I know the best route which is to ride back to the top of the hill and go into the opening there.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
If you see any beaver traps that poachers set please set them off and toss them into one of the many ponds.
