Logging in Cumberland

Please be advised Timberwest contractors will be commencing logging in the Cumberland areas within a week. Operations will be occurring near Short Line, Blue Collar, Allen Lake Main, Railroad, 50:1, Nikkei Mountain.

Active Logging - Stay Clear

To stay safe, please honour any signage or visible signs of logging activities including sounds or visibly seeing equipment. Debris can be thrown hundreds of meters during harvesting.

We have had ongoing dialogue with Timberwest and they will do what is possible to minimize impact on affected trail areas. We thank the various private forest companies in our region for the ongoing access to trails on their lands.

Please pass this information on to anyone you meet on the trails, and check back for updates of when operations have concluded.

Thank you for your support and look for spring Trail Maintenance Dates for opportunities to improve our trail network.
