Rupert's Crossing, Edson, AB
The Edson Quad Club came to us with a problem; they were facing the loss of one of there trails due to the erosion being caused by frequent ATV use. The solution? Quad Road. Initially, the Quad Club used regular access mats but found they had drawbacks:
- They required machinery to install.
- They didn't stay where they were supposed to.
To this day the Club still cannot account for one mat that floated away during the spring!
The results from the Quad Road are told in the pictures below. The area that is no longer being used is regrowing, and the area under the mat is able to regenerate due to the unique design of the panels which lets sunlight and nutrients in.
