Land­slides have forced clo­sure of two trails in Pa­cific Spirit park

- STEPHANIE IP

A land­slide closed a trail in Pa­cific Spirit Re­gional Park on Wed­nes­day. Ac­cord­ing to the Metro Van­cou­ver au­thor­ity, a land­slide forced the clo­sure of Trail 7 on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noon, caus­ing the slope above the trail to be­come un­sta­ble.

“A geotech­ni­cal as­sess­ment is un­der­way,” read a brief up­date shared on Twit­ter by Metro Van­cou­ver.

“For your safety, do not use Trail 7 at this time.”

There is no es­ti­mated time for re­open­ing.

Two days ear­lier, a por­tion of Ad­mi­ralty Trail be­tween East Canyon Trail and Cen­tre Canyon was also closed due to a land­slide. An as­sess­ment for that area is also un­der­way.
