The top section of Upper Supermans at Rubberhead (the very top part that most people don’t ride) will be closed until approximately the end of November. Access is still possible from the 2nd to top entrance. Lichen traverse is also closed. The logging does not affect the trail, but they will be using the access road and have closed the road and trail as a safety precaution.
Canoe Forest Products have placed signs on the closed trails, and on the roads at the active sites. They ask the public to not enter these areas and respect the trail and road closures.
Harvesting and log hauling will continue through to the end of November. Expect industrial logging traffic on the main FSR 110 road daily Monday – Friday from 4am to 6pm.
Muffintop, Meatgrinder and Veggie Delight are open again and cleared for riding.
Canoe Forest Products (CFP)s completed harvesting and all harvesting equipment has left that site. Staff have walked the trails to ensure that they are free and clear of debris. CFP’s harvesting contractor – DR Moore of Salmon Arm did an excellent job working in and around the trails which has made that job all that much easier.
The FSR 110 road system is still being utilized by heavy industrial traffic and will be through the summer months. Logging trucks and harvesting equipment are operating off of the 110.071 road at 6km on the 110 (spur to the right of the A-Frame), road building crews are operating along the 110.101 (access to Muffin Top) as well as up the 110.000 past upper Ravine. The decked wood along the 110 road is also being processed and hauled out so equipment can be expected there as well.
Road users are cautioned to drive / bike with care, yield to industrial traffic and obey all posted work site signs. Crew trucks, graders, tracked equipment, low beds and logging trucks may be encountered at anytime Mon – Fri 5am – 6pm for the next several weeks. The posted road channel for the 110 road system is RR20. Individuals are asked to respect the industrial use / nature of the road as well.
