A landslide in summer has resulted in the closure of a hiking trail until repair work can be completed.
In early July, a portion of the Centennial Trail was blocked following a landslide in the area.
Recreation director Dale MacDonald said a geotechnical firm will look at the site to determine a way to shore up the banks in the area to prevent another landslide from destroying the trail.
The landslide occurred after two storms in the area.
”Right now we don’t have the ability to rebuild the trail,” MacDonald said.
The municipality will apply for a government grant to repair the trail.
The grant application deadline is the end of October.
MacDonald said the trail, built in 2005 for Summerland’s centennial year in 2006, will be closed until some time next year. Other walking trails in Summerland are unaffected.
