Ultimately the decision to reopen trails and open spaces within the privately-owned land lies with the landowner, and at this time the Town is not aware of any plans to develop trails or open spaces further for public use.

The residents of Hinton have been privileged to access this area in the past, with the consent of the landowner. A decision by the private owner of this land to restrict public access to these trails and open spaces has been made. All signage must be obeyed as with any other privately-owned property.
The landowner has been preparing the land for possible future development. The removal of trees assisted with Mountain Pine Beetle tree removal, and fire hazard reduction on the parcel of land. This was not initiated or required by the Town but we supported the work due to these overlapping benefits to the community.
The Town cannot provide contact information for the landowner. Any development permits for development of these lands will be made public at the time they are issued.
