Slides close portion of trail to Troup Junction

A portion of the rail trail between Nelson and Troup Junction has been closed after a couple of slides.

A portion of the rail trail between Nelson and Troup Junction has been closed after a couple of slides.

The Regional District of Central Kootenay’s Joe Chirico said he had no information on the slides, except that one was large and one was small. He didn’t know whether the material was primarily rock or soil.

“From Nelson it’s closed after the last large trestle on the way to Troup,” he said. No work will be done to clear the slides until the slope stability is inspected.

“It could be closed a while. It’s important that people stay away from it because we don’t know how stable it is.”

The closed portion of the trail is not as popular with cross-country skiers as the Morning Mountain to Cottonwood Lake portion, but Chirico said it is well used by hikers and bikers even in winter.
