BC Trail Map Errata
NORTH SHORE TRAIL MAP
ERRATA – 2nd Edition
The Howe Sound Crest Trail (HSCT) north of The Lions and south of Magnesia Meadows has been rerouted to go directly over ‘David Peak’ as the primary route. The “horseshoe” section of the trail which drops ~300 m into the Capilano Watershed was decommissioned by BC Parks in late summer 2015. The already existing route that goes directly over ‘David Pk’ has been formalized using BC Parks standard trail markers and is now the official alignment of the HSCT. See revised map image below:

Freiberg FRS (campground on Tyaughton Lk) is misspelled – should be spelled as Friburg FRS.
Some sections of Mountaineering Route (MR) along Trail Ridge and Warner Ridge are shown in error. Portions of these ridges are more technically difficult than shown and are not recommended for travel. Neither of these two ridges are safe for a complete traverse as shown. Use caution, common sense and know your limits.

STEIN TO JOFFRE TRAIL MAP
ERRATA – 1st Edition
Stein Valley Nlaka’pamux Heritage Park:
As of June 27, 2017, the Stein Management Board has decided that no campfires are allowed in the park year-round. This decision is based on the consistent illegal use of campfires throughout the park. Any individuals found to have started a campfire is subject to a fine under the Park, Conservancy, and Recreation Area Regulations.
The cable car near Cottonwood Campground was removed in summer of 2017. Crossing of the river in this area will be via foot until an official walking bridge is installed – anticipated date: 2018/2019.
Cottonwood Creek is passable on foot during times of low water, which it is at this point (at approx. 50° 21’ 17.50”N / -122° 00’04.72”W on the Blowdown Pass). Otherwise, the Blowdown Pass route to the Stein Divide (at Cottonwood Falls) is impassable until the bridge is repaired.
Nlhaxten/ Cerise Creek Conservancy:
The Cerise Creek trail to Keith’s Hut is closed because of damage from two massive landslides on Joffre Peak. B.C. Parks has also closed the Nlháxten/Cerise Creek Conservancy because of safety concerns.
