Trail Concerns

Please report trail issues such as fallen trees or trail degradation (e.g. washouts/sinkholes or structural failures) to
Provide the trail name and location (such as proximity to trailhead/street) and a photo of the concern, if possible. For fallen trees, indicate whether the obstacle can be stepped over by horses or safely bypassed through the bush, or if the trail is completely blocked by it. Having a person or horse stand next to a fallen tree in the photo is useful to provide information to maintenance crews about the size of the tree. If the issue requires immediate attention to protect public safety, contact the 24-hour dispatch line for the Maple Ridge Public Works Department at 604-463-9581.
