Cranbrook, BC (September 20, 2023) – Crews will be working to remove brush piles along Rails to Trails beginning on Thursday, September 21, 2023, which will close a portion of the trail to all users for a couple of days. We will also be conducting remedial work behind one of the retaining walls.
Rails to Trails will be closed from the train bridge over the St. Mary River through to the Wycliffe Park Road parking lot at the entrance to Shadow Mountain.
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.
The brush piles being removed are from the thinning project conducted by Dogtown Fire & Fuels Management back in May 2023.
We thank all users of Rails to Trails for their understanding while this work is completed.
