Brush pile clean-up to close Rails to Trails

Part of Rails to Trails will be closed while crews work to remove brush piles along the pathway starting Thursday.

Cranbrook officials said a portion of the trail will be off-limits to all uses for a few days.

This will also include remedial work behind one of the retaining walls.

“Rails to Trails will be closed from the train bridge over the St. Mary River through to the Wycliffe Park Road parking lot at the entrance to Shadow Mountain,” said city officials. “While this work is being done, this portion of the Rails to Trails will be closed to all public access for the safety of our trail users and the safety of our staff and our contractor.”

Signage will be posted in the areas being worked on, with a detour route in place for trail users.

The detour will take you along Wycliffe Park Road while crews are at work.

“The brush piles being removed are from the thinning project conducted by Dogtown Fire & Fuels Management back in May 2023,” said city officials. “We thank all users of Rails to Trails for their understanding while this work is completed.”
