District of North Vancouver park rangers will be stationed at trail entry locations in the summer and visitors who attempt to access Quarry Rock will be turned away.
Bylaw officers and RCMP will be available as needed to support District rangers, said Justine Beddall, communications coordinator for DNV.
Beddall said bylaw staff were active in Deep Cove over the weekend, but didn’t issue any tickets for disobeying trail closure signs.
DNV had issued a reminder last month after reports on social media about people jumping the fence to access the Quarry Rock hike or using other trails to access the hike.
District of North Vancouver is once again reminding the public that Quarry Rock and Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge remain closed until further notice.
“We want to ensure people re aware that Quarry Rock is closed to avoid any frustrations or surprises, especially with the sunny weather and upcoming long weekends,” he said.
“We are also making an effort to advise people who live in neighbouring municipalities about the closure, he added.
The Quarry Rock trail is closed due to both the narrowness of the trails in some sections and crowding on the rock lookout itself, which makes physical distancing challenging.
Lynn Canyon Suspension Bridge also remains closed for the same reason. “Please ensure you remain two metres away from others while enjoying the other open trails in the District,” DNV reminds.
