The four-kilometre section of trail will be closed while construction crews and heavy equipment are present. To help ensure the safety of everyone including work crews, trail users are asked to respect equipment, barriers and all posted signage. The trail will be open to the public daily after 6 p.m.

Trucks will be travelling between the Smethurst trail entrance and Little Tunnel between June 21 and 25. This section will remain open but trail users are asked to use caution and watch for vehicle traffic.

Additional trail construction is scheduled between Glenfir and Chute Lake in the coming weeks as the improvement project continues.
