Cyclists and hikers who use the trails at Beatton Provincial Park will notice some new signage thanks to a donation by Canadian Natural.

The company presented a cheque for $6144.99 to the Blizzard Bike Club on Jan.16.

"The mountain bike trail network has been meticulously signed so that now when you are out wandering around on these great trails, there is little chance of getting lost," said club president Dan Webster.

Webster is thankful for all the hard work done by what he calls 'the industrious trail gnomes.'

"The mountain bike trail network was made possible through a Partnership Agreement with the great folks at BC Parks," said Webster. "The signs provide park users the certainty to know where they are so they can plan an enjoyable bike ride, hike, run or snowshoe trip in the park."

Sunday's donation was the second large contribution the Blizzard Bike Club has received this month. North River Midstream presented the club with a $6,500 cheque on Jan. 11 towards its Snow Dog trail groomer.
