Following last week’s closure of part of the trails system above the Alpine neighbourhood for public safety due to a cougar encounter, all trails are set to re-open on Friday, September 1. This includes:

  • No View
  • Rainbow-Flank North
  • 19 Mile Creek
  • Howler
  • Rick’s Roast
  • Cat Scratch Fever
  • Green Monster
  • Skywalk South
  • Jaws

“Cougar Alert” signage will remain in the area, as a reminder that wildlife may be active within their home range. Consider carrying bear spray when using the alpine trails, as it is an effective defensive tool for wildlife encounters.

Please report all sightings of cougars to COS on: 1-877-952-7277
