Cranbrook, BC (October 31, 2023) – The second phase of important brush thinning work, along a section of the Rails to Trails is scheduled for Friday, November 3 through Sunday, November 5, 2023, in partnership with Dogtown Fire & Fuels Management.
The thinning work is focused on improving sight lines and helping reduce the risk of wildfire along the trail from the train bridge over the St. Mary River through to the Wycliffe Park Road parking lot at the entrance to Shadow Mountain.
This is a continuation of thinning work undertaken back in May 2023.
While this work is being done, this portion of the Rails to Trails will be closed to all public access for the safety of our trail users and the safety of our staff and our contractor. Signage and information will be posted in the areas being worked on. A detour route will be in place for Rails to Trails users to instead travel along Wycliffe Park Road while this work is being done.
We thank all users of Rails to Trails for their understanding while this work is completed.
