The Regional District of Central Kootenay says it’s okay to use the Nelson-Salmo Great Northern Trail again.
Portions of the trail were closed recently to prevent encounters with grizzly bears, but there have been no recent sightings. However, that’s partly because conservation officers destroyed two cubs after they charged a Perrier Road resident.
They were part of a famiy that was relocated after roaming the city for nearly a month in September 2010.
The trail’s entire corridor from Troup Junction to Salmo is now open.
