Planned Prescribed Burn to affect the Rails to Trails
Weather-permitting, crews from the City of Cranbrook, with assistance from the British Columbia Wildfire Service are planning a prescribed burn at the River's Crossing Park over the next two weeks. Date and timing of the prescribed burn will be announced closer to the day of the burn.
North Star Rails to Trails will be closed temporarily between the River's Crossing parking lot and the Wycliffe Bridge at the St. Mary's River on the day of the burn.
Nearby residents are asked to keep doors and windows closed tight to help keep any smoke out of their homes. A detour will be in place at the Wycliffe Road trail intersection, signage and barriers will be in place. All trail users are asked to please follow the directions provided on the signage and barricades.
