FROM: Alberta Environment and Parks

I am happy to say that the construction in Lost Creek and Goat Creek went very well. The trail is open for allowable uses; keep in mind that the OHV ban is still in place as the fire hazard remains high.


We are starting construction on the McGillivray Creek trail on August 28th. Please see the attached trail construction notice. The trail will be impassable due to heavy equipment, please refrain from using the trail, regardless of how you recreate.


The current plan for McGillivray Creek is:


–          Three new bridges, all creek crossings at these locations will be decommissioned

–          Three bridges will be replaced to accommodate 4x4s and the creek crossings will be decommissioned

–          Trail work, including some minor reroutes

–          Culvert installations


Please let me know if you have any questions. We are always seeking volunteers to help deck the bridges.
