ok, so if trail restoration is required, should we regard as still Closed until you advise otherwise?

If you have your FVMBA membership, info like this is generally updated in the newsletter. Trail status on Trailforks is managed by volunteers and will get updated in due course. But if you want the latest, a membership gets you the inside track Smile

Yes, thank you! The FVMBA met with the District of Mission today and will be working to reconnect the trail and restore other trails affected by the logging. There are still machines on site as well, the logging work isn't quite finished yet. We'll post information here, on social media, and in our newsletter as soon as it is available.

Trail still closed due to logging. Not advised to cross logged area due to safety issues as trail has been wiped out and loggers are active. It’s possible, but not advised.

Is this still closed due to tree felling?

Good continuation of the climbing network, little bit more challenging then the lower green trail. Couple fun rock faces to scramble up. Tricky in the slick. Yeehaw

First timer here. I just completed merv’s it was fun but pretty hard for me, I had to get off a lot. It’s marked as a BLUE run and not green. Since it’s the only run I have done I can’t say if it easier or harder than a green.

Thanks for the heads up. Probably more of a green run with a blue streak, but one of the easier trails. Granted creek crossing, and some other sections are challenging for a novice rider.

I rode this trail for the first time today. It's a great trail. Technical but flows too. Really cool bridges and some fun rock sections. Great views too.

The start is not obvious, ride up the road till you approach what looks like a weather station. The trail starts to the right of the station.

Great small loop that is good to extend any ride on that side of bear. Good climb, and fun coming down.
