Nlháxten/Cerise Creek Conservancy
Attention Visitors – Important Notice!
Closed for public safety due to landslides originating from Joffre Peak
Two landslides have occurred originating from Joffre Peak; the first on Monday May 13, 2019 and the second on Thursday May 16, 2019. The slides have heavily impacted the Cerise Creek watershed within the Conservancy.
The main access trail to the Conservancy has been buried under slide debris. Summer and winter trail access routes to the backcountry hut, Keith Flavelle Hut, are both impacted by slide debris and water pooling.
The Conservancy area has been assessed and is unsafe to the public. Signage has been posted at the trailheads and on the website.
