New Schacher Trail in Golden BC opens the Singletrack 6 Trans Canada Rockies Mountain Bike Golden Stage


Canadian Timberframes is proud to be one of the primary sponsors of the Schacher Trail in Golden BC. This single track trail will take 3 years to fully complete. And phase 2 (a total of 4.5 km of trail) was completed in time for the Singletrack 6 trans Canada Rockies Stage Race today.



We had a ribbon cutting ceremony to 'officially' open the trail as the competitors of this world class event rode the new trail. 



There will be one additional phase adding 8 more km of trial, taking the trail to the top of Mount 7 where a Gazebo will proudly sit as a memorial to Sean Schacher, whom the trail was named after. This trail will provide single track bike access to the top of Mount 7, where previously the only option was an old logging road. So now enthusiasts can ride up to the monumental down hill ride of Mount 7.


This trail is hugely significant for our company since Sean Schacher was a long term employee of ours….this project is really important to our company & all of our employees who have worked with Sean for years (and his Father Rick, who still works for us). It means a lot to everyone, the constant pride within our organization around the building of the trail & his tribute.

“ We at Canadian Timberframes are very proud to sponsor this project, not only because what it offers our community & visitors but for the Legacy of Sean Schacher. Sean was a valued employee of ours and we think this trail is a very fitting tribute to Sean & his family." Says Stephanie Bowes, Executive Director at Canadian Timberframes.


We at Canadian Timberframes & all of our employees are thrilled to see the continuous effort on this trail for Sean & the amazing access it opens up to mountain biking community!
