Posted November 2, 2018 -- Closure Affects the Castlegar Area -- Teck has closed the Ward's Ferry Trail which runs between Glade and South Slocan (between Castlegar and Nelson) due to issues with some of the new infrastructure that was recently built along the trail. To avoid this closure, trail users can connect from Glade to South Slocan via the ferry that crosses the Kootenay River and follow Highway 3A. Generally the Ward's Ferry Trail is considered more of a hiking route (bicycles are allowed however) so this may only affect trail hikers rather than cyclists. For more information and updates, please visit the Castlegar Parks and Trails Society's page about the trail. We expect the trail should be reopening in the near future - please stay tuned.
