|Fisherman's Trail Upgrade and 2014 Closures|
Expect periodic closures of Fisherman's Trail North of Homestead and up to the Spur 4 trail junction, and from Homestead down the Twin Bridges.
During closures, large machines and trucks may be present not allowing anyone to pass. Set dates are not confirmed, but signage will be posted prior to trail closures.
With the last major upgrades occuring in the mid-1990's, maintenance is now required to alleviate trail impacts as a result of small slides, erosion, and failing infrastructure.
We are working towards a safer and more sustainable trail network for everyone's enjoyment.
Over the next few years we will be working on:
- Boardwalk Removal and Repair
- Trail Re-surfacing
- Drainage Improvements
- Bridge Replacements
Expect short delays and work crews in this area. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or concerns.
Thank you for your patience.

|Dog Mountain: On-Leash Advisory|
All dogs on the Dog Mountain trail are required to be on-leash at all times. This supports Dog Mountain’s status as a sensitive sub-alpine ecosystem in the LSCR Management Plan. Furthermore, it aligns Metro Vancouvers’ dog rules with BC Parks’ in the surrounding area, and supports wildlife and public safety.

|The Learning Lodge|
Originally constructed as a temporary film set in 1996, the building served the LSCR as an educational and public events venue. The Learning Lodge was removed in July of 2014 due to considerable geotechnical concerns with the slope to the East and its overall poor condition. Work on the site wrapped up in mid-September with the replacement of a water utility drainage pipe, slope stabilization works and restoration of the site. The area will be restored into a picnic area.
|LSCR Waste Stream Diversion Facility|
The LSCR is committed to reducing waste and we are taking an innovative approach to waste management. Twelve of our garbage only
cans have been removed from the trail network and re-located to the main parking lot, creating a recycling-focused Waste Stream Diversion Facility
. LSCR visitors will now be able to sort their waste by type. Examples include Bottles and Cans, Dog Waste, Food Waste, and Mixed Paper. When you visit the LSCR, please help our initiative by sorting your waste accordingly. The proper sorting of waste products will prevent the majority of LSCR waste from entering permanent landfill storage. If you pack it in
, please pack it out to the LSCR Waste Stream Diversion Facility
|Mountain Bike Structure Decommissioning|
Safety inspections of existing mountain bike structures on LSCR land are being conducted. Some mountain bike structures on popular LSCR trails (Ned’s, Dale’s, etc.) have reached their lifespan and may now present a safety hazard to users due to structural or surfacing deficiencies. Those structures deemed to be unsafe and beyond repair are being removed.
|Metro Vancouver Supporting the NSMBA Trail Adoption Program (TAP)|
Metro Vancouver is supporting the North Shore Mountain Bike Association (NSMBA) in their commitment to trail maintenance and restoration. Please expect some work to be underway on the following trails this season within the LSCR: Circuit-8, Corkscrew, TNT, Dale’s, and Forever After. Please note that this work will include the removal of structures in unsatisfactory condition. Your patience is appreciated while this work is being carried out. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the NSMBA or LSCR staff at LSCR@metrovancouver.org or 604.432.6200.
