MoT Road Closures and trail use reminders from BC Govt for May Long Weekend

Here is an e-mail that I received from the Ministry of Transportation, giving an update on the Greenstone Road.

Can you please forward to ALL members.

Also, please note that the Durand (off Tunkwa) is still closed.  I haven’t heard otherwise, so we are making the assumption that the Domenic cut off is still snowed in or far too wet to use.  So it appears for the first time, that I know of, the Duffy/Greenstone area is closed to campers and ORV users this weekend.

RSTBC Recreation Officer recommends Greenstone/Diffy/Inks trails not be ridden until dry out

From RSTBC Recreation Officer Noelle Kekula:

With the recent rain/snow melt issues there are concerns of additional damage to the trail system and a chance of more wash outs, therefore, I am recommending that all ORV trails not be ridden on until soils begin to dry out.

I’m unsure of what the soil conditions are in the Greenstone/Duffy/Inks area, but if riding continues this will create additional rutting and accelerate erosion, which will cause unnecessary damage to the trial network. This will require much restoration (money) when the soils have dried out.

Getting ready for riding season!

Will keep updating as trail stewards get me new trails data.  BCORMA Trails app will be released from beta for this season to use on your Android phone in the backcountry.

Natural Resource Road Act Stakeholder Consultations restarting

Got a full day of proposed Natural Resource Road Act (NRRA) legislation meetings. The Government ORV stakeholder consultations are now coming back on line after a hiatus.

Go to to link to Government NRRA information pages. This proposed legislation could have large changes on our sport, both increased access but with more requirements.
