The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources, Recreation Sites and Trails Branch would like to remind all Off Road Vehicle users of the Summer Motorized Closure on Yanks Peak (Snowshoe Plateau). This closure has been in effect since 2005 and was put in place to protect sensitive sub alpine environments.
Recent inspections have shown that there has been an increase in motorized activity within the closure areas and Ministry staff would like to remind users of several key points;
· The Yanks Peak Snowmobile Cabin is NOT accessible by motorized vehicles in the snow free months
· Roundtop Mountain is NOT accessible in summer due to vehicles leaving the hard packed road into sensitive areas
