COVID-19 Update for Rubberhead

While Rubberhead is still covered in the white stuff, we thought we would post an update from Rec Sites and Trails BC regarding access to Rec Sites and Trails, which includes our beloved Rubberhead.

We also encourage Shuswap riders to avoid travelling to ride. It is tempting to look south or to Kamloops and see the clear trails, however this is not a time to travel. We are also seeing many warnings from trail groups in the region about trails that are thawing out, and right now riding on them could be damaging anyhow. Just think how sweet it will all be when this calms down!

The SCC echos the recommendation from RSTBC to exercise more caution than normal when on your bike.

Here is a quick recap from RSTBC:

All Recreation Sites are now Closed
Recreation Trails remain Open (with appropriate social distancing)
