Gate information for the Weekend of June 20-21

All gates on the east side of Vancouver Island will be closed this weekend due to increasing forest fire danger risk.

For the Alberni Valley, gates on Canal Main at CX91 and CX165 will be closed.  All other gates are expected to be open.  Gates at Mission Road and Canal Main may be closed due to on-going theft and vandalism. To avoid potential delays, use McCoy Lake Road and Woodward Pit Road to access the Canal Main FSR.

Cameron Main is closed part way down the Cameron Valley; please review its specific blog posting for more information.

With increasing forest fire danger, this could change without notice over the weekend. .

Report a wildlife to the Coastal Fire Center at *5555 from your mobile phone.


  1. Hello,
    Just need a bit of information. I live in the vicinity of the Glenora Shawnigan gate and was wondering if the closure applies to vehicles only or is a complete access closure. As I considering a day walk or bicycling up in that area on the coming week end.

  2. We are looking at full access closures at this time.

  3. Just wondering if Comox Main will be closed this weekend; i'm hoping to head towards Willemar from Port Alberni on the 25th and out on the 28th. Thanks!


  4. Full access closures whereabouts?

  5. I assume that access to Mt Arrowsmith via Cameron main will be closed this coming weekend (27-8 June)?

  6. Yes access to Mt Arrowsmith via Cameron main will be closed this weekend

  7. Yes Comox Main will be closed this weekend due to the fire hazard and the anticipated hot dry weather.
