Nlháxten/Cerise Creek Conservancy
Attention Visitors – Important Notice!
BC Parks has reassessed the closure and the closure area has been amended
In May 2019, BC Parks closed the Nlháxten/Cerise Creek Conservancy after two landslides from Joffre Peak heavily impacted the Cerise Creek watershed within the Conservancy.
BC Parks has reassessed the closure and the closure area has been amended. Public access is not permitted within the immediate slide path as outlined in red on the map posted on the Nlháxten/Cerise Creek Conservancy website. The remaining areas of the Conservancy are now open to public access.
The Keith Flavelle Hut (Keith’s Hut) is outside the closure area and open for public access.
Signage has been posted at the trailheads and on the conservancy website.
BC Parks will be conducting an assessment of the closure area in Spring 2020.
