The Martha Creek Makeover
is a trail maintenance and fundraising project for the epic Martha Creek Trail in Revelstoke BC. For background on this story you can check out this previous Pinkbike article
Organized by Wandering Wheels
and supported by Rec. Sites and Trails BC
and the Revelstoke Cycling Association
, the Martha Creek Makeover has raised money and put hundreds of hours of work into the Martha Creek Trail! Bridges are being rebuilt, drainage and erosion problems are being addressed, there is lots of rock armouring and brushing happening, even some new jumps and berms are being built! Have a look through some of our work photos and see below for your chance to visit Revelstoke and shred summer or winter in support of the Martha Creek Makeover!

Many of the bridges and boardwalks on the trail were severely damaged from snow loads and high water.
Thanks to Paul from Glacier Helicopters
for transporting the lumber at a great deal for this project!
Local trail building and construction company Little-Big Works Ltd.
