If you’re an avid hiker or biker you’ll be disappointed to know dozens of trails on Mount Seymour are closed.
The District of North Vancouver says it was given no warning by the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation – who owns the land – before closing the trails.
“Anyone that has been for decades hiking, walking, or biking or running on trails on this property is now prohibited from entering the property,” says Councillor Matthew Bond.
At least two dozen “No Trespassing” signs popped up on Mount Seymour’s Trails last week.
Bond says it was a complete surprise to the community.
“No clear explanation of why or what their intents are.”
More than 600 acres are closed off to the public.
“Many of them, including the Baden-Powell trail included, use these trails on a daily basis.”
Bond says the District is reaching out to CMHC
In a statement to CKNW, CHMC says “there are no immediate plans for the property and CMHC is reviewing all options for future use of the site.”
