Gate Closures - Municipal Forest Reserve
July 12, 2018
The recent and forecasted warm and dry weather has increased the forest fire hazard. In order to protect the Municipal Forest Reserve, the Mount Prevost, Mount Sicker, and Grace Road forestry gates will be locked as of 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, July 17, 2018 until further notice.
The areas will still be open for activities such as hiking and mountain biking, but there will be no motorized vehicle access. Overnight camping, campfires and fireworks are not permitted within the Municipal Forest Reserve.
The gate closure will continue until there is a significant drop in the Fire Hazard which will be assessed by the Forestry Department. Further updates will be posted here.
