The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources, Recreation Sites and Trails Branch would like to remind all Off Road Vehicle users of the Summer Motorized Closure on Yanks Peak (Snowshoe Plateau). This closure has been in effect since 2005 and was put in place to protect sensitive sub alpine environments.
Recent inspections have shown that there has been an increase in motorized activity within the closure areas and Ministry staff would like to remind users of several key points;
· The Yanks Peak Snowmobile Cabin is NOT accessible by motorized vehicles in the snow free months
· Roundtop Mountain is NOT accessible in summer due to vehicles leaving the hard packed road into sensitive areas
· All motorized traffic must remain on the designated trail (Yanks Peak Trail, identified in the field with white arrows), braiding into sensitive areas is starting to occur.
Recreation Sites and Trails BC knows the benefits of providing summer motorized access to areas in the high country and have taken great strides to provide the opportunity via certain trails, while continuing to manage the sensitive areas that users come to see.
We greatly appreciate your cooperation in ensuring all users remain outside the closure areas, and on the designated trails.
