Road closure

The Scotch Creek Forest Service Road will be closed from the 12.5-kilometre marker from Monday, Sept. 16 to Wednesday, Oct. 16, for a much-needed bridge upgrade. Log supports will be replaced by a stabilized retaining wall.

The Pukeashun Trail, north of the closure, will remain accessible from the east on Seymour Main-Celista Creek Forest Service Road and from the west on Adams Forest Service Road.
