Flood Notice

Due to the 2013 Flood, some trails and bridges remain washed out and select trails are closed. Significant work has already been done to re-open access to trails and areas. Some popular trails still closed due to flood damage include Ribbon and Galatea Creeks, Marmot and portions of Bill Milne and Prairie Creek.
