Did you know?  MMLT is a volunteer driven, non-profit organization.  We are NOT a government agency nor are government funded.  MMLT is funded through fundraising, grants, our amazing members and the generosity of our neighbours.   If you’d like to help with our clean up efforts, please consider making a donation at

Watch this page for updates about properties reopening as clean-up progresses. 

Thank you for your patience as our team of volunteers work to restore the trails on the properties we know you love to visit.  We look forward to inviting you back as soon as it’s safe for you to do so.  Reopening will be done one property at a time as clearing is completed.  In the meantime, please do not visit any closed properties.

  • 15 July 2022:  Rose Hill Nature Reserve has reopened.  Thanks to the work of a 6 person crew, the trails have been restored and are open.
  • 23 June 2022:  High Lonesome Nature Reserve has now re-opened.  Visitors are asked to use caution when visiting.  A couple of trails are impassable and remain closed – do not attempt to use them. There are also a few sections where the trails are redirected and new trail markers are in place – please follow these as this is now the safest route to take.  Enjoy your visit!
  • 20 June 2022:  The last of the heavy chainsaw work was completed.  We now await a final approval to re-open.
  • 11 June 2022:  With the majority of the major clean-up done at the High Lonesome property, a team of 6 volunteers swept the trails for smaller debris
  • 9 June 2022:  Clearing at High Lonesome begins.  A small team armed with chainsaws has tackled some trouble spots and posted temporary closure signs on trails that require heavier equipment.  A group of volunteers will begin clearing small brush from trails this weekend.  NOTE:  High Lonesome remains closed until further notice.
  • 2 June 2022:  A plan has been established by MMLT Conservation Coordinator, Rienne Moore..  The team has reached out to volunteers to help with the clearing process.
  • 30 May 2022:  cliffLAND @ Blueberry Mountain has reopened.
  • 27 May 2022: Reports detailing storm damage from 9/10 properties have been received from MMLT teams who have conducted site visits. MMLT Conservation Coordinator, Rienne Moore, is now creating a recovery plan, forming teams and determining priority tasks and locations. Volunteer information is being compiled.
  • 24 May 2022:  The Leadership Team has met and reviewed the initial storm reports from the various properties.  Due to the amount of damage and debris on the properties and trails, it was decided that all MMLT properties will be closed to the public until they can be cleared of debris and deemed safe for the public.
