Trails in the Spawning Channel area between the Squamish Valley Golf Course and the Mamquam River have been closed due to erosion of the trail along the Mamquam River caused by the recent heavy rainfall.  

The trail area has been closed to the public until further notice.  

An informal dike exists along the water's edge, with the actual Mamquam River dike set back along the golf course. Public Works crews are keeping a close eye on the integrity of the informal dike as the low lying portions of the spawning channels and trails may be impacted. The Water Survey of Canada gauge on the Mamquam River suggests that the worst of the high flows is over for now. The weather forecast is for drier conditions in the coming few days.

The map below indicates the areas to avoid due to trail erosion. Public Works crews have placed barricades to restrict access to the affected area. Please stay out of the area for your safety.
