As another long weekend approaches, outdoor recreation facilities remind the public of restrictions in place.

The trails at Tetrahedron Provincial Park will remain open for day-trippers, but the cabins are still closed for any use.

In an email to Coast Reporter, Tetrahedron Outdoor Club member Sue Duxbury said cabin stewards will be reminding visitors of the closure. Duxbury added that high clearance vehicles with chains and a shovel are required for the access road to the park.

Dakota Ridge was set to be closed for the season as of April 1.

Elphinstone director Donna McMahon had asked at the March 11 Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) board meeting if the Dakota Ridge season could be extended. SCRD staff said there would be a cost impact for projects, maintenance and staffing. The risk from the access road would be “potentially substantial,” staff added, saying it’s not a matter of whether it will become impossible to use, but when.
