    • Make plenty of noise and travel in groups.
    • Be aware of your surroundings. Look and listen for bears and their signs.
    • Keep your pet on a leash.

    Affected Areas
  • Wedge Connector Trail Bridge Washout

    Effective:  July 1, 2021

      • Effective Date: July 2021 until further notice
      • Where: Wedge Connector Trail as it crosses Evan-Thomas Creek.
      • Why: A heavy rain event in July 2021 once again washed out this bridge. During the winter season and when water levels are low the crossing is generally manageable, however during spring runoff and times when water levels are higher, crossing will be dangerous and impassable.
