Trail Closures and Notices

For your safety please avoid trails that are closed. Note that there may be closures that have not been reported to the FVMBA.

A reminder that this is the time of the year when bears become active in the Fraser Valley. It’s time to start using standard bear precautions: be alert, make noise and carry bear spray.

Vedder Mountain & Tamihi

Logging on Vedder Mountain in Chilliwack. On-going May – August 2017.

Timber harvest and road construction operations are scheduled to take place this year on Vedder Mountain. These operations will be occurring five days a week (Monday through Friday) from 3:00am to 4:30pm. During this time, sections of Trails and Roads adjacent to operations will be subject to temporary closure.

Please note that this schedule may need to be revised, based on conditions outside of our control, such as extreme weather. Updates to this schedule will be made as operations progress. These operations pose numerous safety hazards; for your personal safety, it is extremely important that trail users respect these closures as they occur. In addition, trail users should be aware that they may encounter active machinery (including logging machinery and loaded logging trucks) along the road sections in the general area. Never approach active machinery from behind, and always wait to get the go ahead from the operator before passing machinery. If you encounter a loaded logging truck, please stop, ensure the operator can see you, and keep clear of the truck until it passes by.
