Slide Closes Galena Trail

A section of the Galena Trail has been closed due to a slide, which occurred at 2.3 kilometres in from the highway yard entrance (300 metres east of Denver Canyon). The trail is closed from Denver Canyon to the Cable Car. Click here to view map.

A 20-metre section of trail has been covered by debris. The RDCK estimates it could take up to a week to reopen that section of the trail. 

The Regional District of Central Kootenay has hired a geotechnical engineer to assess the area.
The RDCK thanks users for respecting posted signage and staying off the trail until further notice.
