The District of Sparwood is the latest regional community to close certain trails due to the risk of wildfires.
Effective immediately, all recreational paths except Juniper Trail between Englemann Spruce Drive, Red Cedar Drive, and Pine Avenue, Central Park Trail between Ponderosa Drive and Pinyon Road and the Sparwood Connector between Pine Avenue and Ponderosa Drive, are off limits to the public.

Residents will need to divert to roadways and highways.
The District says these are full closures and no person, at any time, or for any reason, can use these trails.
The Cities of Kimberley and Fernie previously made similar decisions.
