Regional district issues cautionary notice for trail users

The regionial district is cautioning KVR trail users to beware of damage from this year's sping freshet when using the recreational corridor.

PENTICTON - Damage from the spring freshet continues to cause issues on the regional district’s trail system.

The Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen is reminding residents and visitors to use caution when using the Kettle Valley Rail Trail.

This year’s spring runoff resulted in washouts in some trail sections that have not been repaired yet.

Recreational trail users are also being advised to watch for landslides and other debris including trees and rocks.

The regional district is identifying affected areas and developing mitigation plans for damaged parts of the trail, and is asking the public to report any hazardous locations on the trail they may come across, noting the district’s 275 km trail network can pose a challenge to monitor at the best of times.
