Maymont

Background: Glenburn Regional Park is situated on Highway 376 between Maymont and Sonningdale on the north bank of the North Saskatchewan River. The bare lands and cactuses that cover the terrain might lead you to believe that you are in Swift Current rather than the northern part of the province. Maymont is equipped with campsites, both electrified and non-electrified, as well as facilities that include showers and modern washrooms. Don't forget to bring a bathing suit to cool off with a swim in the man-made pool that is filled from a natural spring. The regional park also hosts ball diamond and a 9-hole golf course. Their concession will supply any fluids and snacks that you need to quench your thirst and replenish your energy after cycling through the difficult terrain on the valley face.

Difficulty: Advanced - Maymont only has one trail in the park. It is equipped with the climbs and descents that only an expert rider dare to brave. Mostly single track, the trail combines long climbs and steep descents with virtually no double track.

Directions : Glenburn Regional Park is located approximately 7 kilometers south of Maymont on Highway 376 via Highway 16. The area is well marked on the highway with Regional Park signs.

What to Bring: A patch kit with extra tubes is essential as the cactuses can take their toll. Mosquito repellent is a must, as well as a first aid kit.
