 I say boycott them, I'm sure everyone here has done the canyon run at least 1x, no need to go back as far as I'm concerned.  other than the dam, it wasn't really a memorable trip to begin with.

Regardless of price or attitudes, im still running the east side up to the camp and back down the east side.  It is a must at least once a season, but lots of other great trails up there without visiting the canyon ..

I've never run it that way. Always the loop. Good day trip out of Cochrane, I'd imagine, running east side both ways 

 

Am aware of the ' politics '. Haven't been up in years.

Agreed on the east side being way nicer.    We generally do the full loop and then head south towards Timmins (when the C trail is open) and then over to Cochrane.    That makes for a full day and a nice ride.

They can charge what they want. Us sledders can choose if we need fuel or not. No one is forcing us to buy fuel there. Better make sure you have enough to get back to Cochrane either way. Sometimes smooth rock is out and you need fuel at top to make it thru the day. I am with inferno on this one. Ride top, fuel up if you need to and that’s it. We are all paying to have trail there so may as well ride it, if you can 😎.

This is what sticks in my craw, we the permit buyers pay for that trail to exist and be maintained throughout the season. These jerkoff clowns are gouging the hands that feed them to the point it's absolutely sickening.

Exactly!!

 

The odd thing is there seems to be a strong divide that are either for or against the “camp”….which is odd knowing most don’t like to be ripped off.

Not to sling mud but honestly from what I have read on social media most of their supporters are of the mouth breathing "I'm just gonna send it" crowd of riders lol

I can’t wait for first few riders of season to report back. Going to be 7 bucks this year with a 70 minimum you think? 🤔

$8/ltr with a $80 minimum??  Doesn't matter, I'm not going anyways.

53 litres and pretty thirsty if running hard.

 

Mine was always the most expensive at the pumps

First time filling it, my buddy was done filling his, paid and moved away from the pump, sat on his sled and stared at me wondering why I was still pumping gas in.  LOL
