We have received a couple rider reports of the Elk Valley Trail dead-ending at a gravel pit about 4 miles north of Hosmer, BC. We are awaiting a response from local contacts but in the meantime we do not know if the obstacle is temporary or will become a long-term issue. This post will be updated when we receive more information. The suggested detour is to ride PR 3 between Sparwood and Hosmer.

Attached is a screenshot showing the location of the obstacle.

More info on the obstacle:

The trail meets a earthen berm, the other side of which falls away into the pit. See pic below. At least one rider reported they walked their bike down the berm and crossed the pit. The trail does resume on the other side, which is also shown in pic below.

We rode this trail on August 14. Trail markers now clearly mark a route around the eastern portion of the pit.
