Effective Date: January 7, 2021 until Further Notice
Where: Black Shale Suspension Bridge, High Rockies Trail
Why: Bridge closed in winter due to snow accumulation. The bypass trail is still open to allow trail users to continue on this section of the High Rockies Trail.
Alberta Parks is replacing the William Watson Day Lodge. The new lodge will enhance the overall visitor experience and safety, and bring the facility up to today’s international accessibility standards.
To ensure a safe construction site a full closure of William Watson Lodge facilities, potentially up to two years, will be in place for the duration of the project. Day users and overnight guests will not be able to visit during construction.
Group day users and the public are encouraged to explore nearby alternatives for day excursions.
