High water has caused a section of the Vedder Rotary loop trail to be washed away.
Large trees were seen falling into the Vedder River on Tuesday at the spot where the river current has been eroding the trail, in the Vedder River Campground.
“This is a dynamic section of river where flow patterns can change and lead to erosion along the bank,” City spokesperson Liana Wiebe said in a statement.
“We are experiencing high flows this year and this has accelerated erosion in that location.”
City crews on-site Thursday placing rock to reinforce the river bank and stop the erosion.
“Once complete, we will reinstate the trail.”
