On behalf of Ridgemont Holdings Ltd., Parastone is pleased to announce that a portion of the Ridgemont trails network will be open to the public effective at 4:00 p.m. Friday, May 15th, 2020.

Parastone would like to thank the community for respecting the temporary closure of the Ridgemont trails over the 2019/2020 winter. “We understand the frustration felt by trail users during this time and truly appreciate their patience and commitment,” said Simon Howse, General Manager for Parastone. Parastone has completed a safety inspection of the trails to ensure they are cleared of any brush and debris in time for the Victoria Day long weekend.
