BC Forest Service Road Condition and Updates
– Please Post your information via the comments below.
I promote getting out into the woods and the backcountry of BC. Many British Columbian recreation sites can be enjoyed with a bit of planning and luck.
Often, I will go to find a recreation site or trail and find that a forest service road or FSR is decommissioned or simply impassable. Other times I will find large washouts exist on parts of the road but usually see that the dangerous areas are flagged. Some of the washouts will stop an RV from reaching their camping destination or other times if one is speeding, a washout or other dangerous road condition could lead to a catastrophic end to an otherwise exciting adventure.
The following British Columbian Road Condition links will be helpful to you if you are heading for a weekend adventure regardless if you have a 4X4 or not. Please check the links for regular updates to find if your back country route is safe and open.
The following links are updated by individual forest service districts.
First, this BC Forestry Regions link may help find more than what I have found below. All users have a responsibility to check for updated conditions and use forest roads according to current conditions. Road conditions can change without any warning and this ledger may not reflect such conditions.
- The very busy Sea to Sky District road condition updates that are urgently important.
- In the SELKIRK RESOURCE DISTRICT (Arrow Boundary, Columbia, and Kootenay Lake Timber Supply Areas) website you will find a excel spreadsheet that has the regions FSR updates by looking on the menu at the left and clicking the link under engineering the this Selkirk area Road Condition Report link.
- Vancouver Island South Island Natural Resource District including the Shawnigan Forest Service Road Project
