Shuswap trail closed temporarily

Portion of Reinecker Creek Trail closed but still lots of events this weekend.

The Reinecker Creek lower west trail is temporarily closed for a timber harvest. The Shuswap Trail Alliance states that its good working relationship with Federated Co-op continues with a short period of logging taking place along the lower west Reinecker Creek Trail. The forestry company is pushing to have the harvest done quickly within a month and will then work with the Trail Alliance and Columbia Shuswap Regional Distrct Parks to reopen the trail. The Lower East Reinecker Creek Trail that is connected to Herald Park, and the Upper East and West Trail loop, remain open. Watch for logging trucks on the Bastion FSRoad.
