Nelson, BC:  The Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) is advising the public that a section of the Nelson-Salmo Great Northern Trail between Wildhorse Creek Road and Wesco Road will be closed indefinitely. The closure is effective immediately. Recent weather events, and flooding of the Salmo River have washed out a significant portion of the trail.

The RDCK thanks users for respecting posted signage and staying off this portion of the trail. All trail users are being asked to stay away from riverbanks and fast-flowing water.
