The Hanes Valley Trail is currently closed to the public.
The backcountry at Lynn Headwaters Regional Park is closed, and this applies to routes beyond Norvan Falls, that is Hanes Valley, Coliseum Mountain and Lynn Lake as well as routes in the Grouse subalpine. Those include Dam Mountain, Thunderbird Ridge, Crown Mountain, Goat Mountain, Little Goat & Goat Ridge.
Unpredictable and rapidly changing hazardous mountain weather conditions may include:
Snow & slippery conditions in steep terrain
Rock and ice fall
Lack of visibility caused by fog &/or snow
No trail markers
When Hanes Valley Trail is officially opened by Metro Vancouver Regional Parks BC Adventure Smart will share trail-specific safety video.
“Abiding by trail closures is AdventureSmart. It helps land managers and supports local BC search and rescue groups like North Shore Rescue in this region,” says AdventureSmart BC.
