Hollyburn Chute conditions and May 26 training run changes
This year is a particularly bad one for windfall on many trails, with several sustaining significant damage from storms over the past six months. The Hollyburn Chute section of the Baden Powell Trail (which is roughly south of the Holllyburn Lodge to Craigmohr Road) had, at last count, about 60 trees down across the trail. Several volunteers have cleared fallen branches and put up trail tapes so you can navigate through the Chute, but it’s currently not runnable.
The District of West Vancouver is aware of the Hollyburn Chute damage and they will send work crews to clean it up in the next few weeks. Until that is done, our training runs will avoid the Chute beginning with this Sunday’s run, so please ensure you hear the updated route information at the training run briefing. (The meeting place and time are unchanged.)
