Nymph Falls Accessible Trail and Access Route
The CVRD is proposing to construct a 455 m long access route at Nymph Falls Park along the existing Mid-Line Trail. The access route is to provide multi-use access from the parking lot to the falls including closer access for emergency and service vehicles. A meeting will be held on Monday, November 5, 2018 at 7 pm at the CVRD board room to exchange information with local residents and interested park users. Learm more about this project.
Timberwest Harvesting - Royston to Cumberland Trail
Adjacent private property to the Royston Cumberland Trail is scheduled for logging starting September 26, 2018 and continuing into mid October. To ensure user safety, Timberwest has arranged for trail marshals on the trail during periods where harvesting activity is nearby to help guide trail users. Please expect minor delays.
If no trail marshals are present Timberwest has deemed it safe to pass but please remain on the Royston to Cumberland trail. Please contact the Comox Valley Regional District at 250-334-6000 with any trail use concerns.

Weather Warnings and Advisories – Use Caution In Our Parks
During high winds keep out of the parks due to hazards with falling trees and branches. Keep away from water courses during extreme weather conditions such as storm tides, freezing and flooding. Do not cross pooling water on trails if you can’t see the trail surface as this may pose a risk of falling.
Always exercise caution when travelling the areas especially with pets and young children. For updated weather advisory information view the Government of Canada weather page.
One Spot bridge at Orr Road Closed
The wooden bridge between Orr and Todd Roads on the One Spot Trail will be closed until mid-December. The supporting timbers are rotting and cracked leaving the bridge at risk of collapsing. Trail users can easily detour around the bridge on the road. A replacement bridge is planned.
Morning Beach Park Stairs Now Open
The stairs at Morning Beach Park on Denman Island have re-opened. The existing staircase at the top of the foreshore has been re-aligned and connected to the main staircase. Rock-filled wire baskets were used to create a small access staircase to join the top of the foreshore with the base of the relocated stairs. Please be aware that the treads created by the wire baskets are uneven but are better suited to absorb the powerful waves from our winter storms.
We are monitoring Eastern Grey Squirrels. Grey squirrels are an introduced species that may pose a threat to native squirrels and birds.
We are asking park visitors to report sightings to allow us to:
- map the current distribution
- determine the spread of these species
- determine if action is required to protect native species.
If you spot a big bushy squirrel please contact us:
