Trail Conditions

This page is an effort to help hikers anticipate trail conditions.  Outdated information on the internet is a plague, but it may not be possible for this page to always have current information.  Please email to or use the comment page on this site, if you have more recent information about trails on Quadra.

As of 15 February 2023, expect winter conditions on all trails.  This may include trees and branches down, water on the trail, slippery rocks, possible snow at higher elevation.  Trail maintenance is usually done once a year and not after each winter storm.  Be self-sufficient.  Even better, offer to help the Trail Committee maintain the Quadra trails by calling 250-285-3897.

Trail Conditions of Consequence

Kay du Bois – As of March 11th substantial work has been done with drainage ditches and culverts to remediate wet areas on the trail at the south end.

Surge Narrows Trail – On February 11th the bridge on the Surge Narrows trail was replaced following the removal of the old bridge in 2021.  The trailhead now begins at the upper parking lot with a newly developed section of trail to connect with the old trail.

Mt. Seymour Trail – This trail has been closed since December 2022 for road construction and logging.  The new logging road crosses the trail and the first bridge has been replaced by a culvert.  Active logging may be complete by the end of February.  Trail and access restoration will follow.

Nugedzi Lakes Trail – The bridge across Nugedzi Creek was removed in 2021 and crossing during high volume of run-off can be challenging.  It is expected that the new bridge will be replaced this spring (2023).
