Updated May 9, 2024:  The following trails and hiking areas are closed until further notice: Carrot Mountain, McDougall Rim,  Rose Valley Regional Park and Bear Creek Provincial Park (hiking trails – the campground is open). Please respect the signage and barricades. As sometimes signage is damaged or removed by members of the public inadvertently, it is advised that people should not be hiking or exploring in any areas where a wildfire took place as there are too many unknowns and your safety may be at risk.
