Rainfall Warning = Caution on the Trails

Screen-Shot-2015-08-31-at-10.38

Environment Canada has issued a rainfall warning for Metro Vancouver, with the most significant rainfall occurring on the North Shore. This along with forecasted heavy winds means we are in for a wet and blustery couple days. What does this mean for hikers and other trail users? It means that creeks are going to be flowing higher than usual, there may be potential tree blowdown obscuring/blocking trails, trails will be more slippery, and visibility may be significantly reduced. Additionally, there may be risk of trail instability on steeper slopes creating a rockfall / slide hazard.
