Section of Stocking Lake Trail closed due to water main repair work

A section of the Stocking Lake Trail is temporarily closed as of Wednesday, July 3, 2019 for at least a week as the Town of Ladysmith repairs a broken water main.

Trail users accessing the trailhead from Thetis Drive will be turned back at the Balancing Reservoir – approximately 1.5 kilometres along the path up to Stocking Lake.

The Stocking Lake Trail loop remains fully open but the public is asked to please access it using the connecting trail from Heart Lake.

During the trail closure the Town will be repairing a broken water main that is critical to our community's water supply from Stocking Lake.

Ladysmith, Stz'uminus First Nation and Diamond Improvement District residents are reminded that Stage 3 water restrictions remain in effect for the area.

Updates on the reopening of the Stocking Lake Trail will be posted on our website www.ladysmith.ca, as well as our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
