Wow! The sun is shining and the sky is so blue! It is making me think I need to get out and hit the trails. I always try to make it to Kinney Lake once in the winter. So I was wondering if the trail is open?? Please comment below if you have been in the last few weeks.
This is from BC Parks:
During 2021’s extreme heat and rainfall, the Berg Lake Trail was seriously flood damaged. Many parts are dangerous or impassable. During the winter, these parts are covered by snow and can be used by visitors with backcountry experience.
As the snow melts, the trail will once again become too dangerous for public use. The entire trail will be closed from April 1 to June 26, 2023, for parking lot paving and trail construction.
The trail to Kinney Lake Campground will reopen on June 27, 2023, for day-hikes and overnight stays. On June 27, 18 tent pads will open at the campground. This is 7km from the parking lot and can only be accessed on foot.
Starting February 27, you can reserve a campsite four months in advance of your desired arrival at Kinney Lake Campground. The sites will remain open until September 30, 2023.
The six other backcountry campgrounds on the trail will remain closed throughout 2023. BC Parks is continuing to rebuild the upper portions of the Berg Lake Trail. Check back here for updates.
So does that mean it is currently open until March 31st?
