Road leading to Golden Ears park reopens after medical incident

Aug 2 2020, 11:22 am

The road leading to Golden Ears Provincial Park reopened just after noon Sunday, allowing hikers and campers to enter and exit the park once again.

A BC Parks spokesperson told Daily Hive there is no danger to those using the park today. The checkpoint to verify hiking day-use passes is operating again, and those camping were unaffected.

Fern Crescent was closed for several hours Sunday morning because of a medical emergency, preventing drivers from entering or leaving.

Ridge Meadows RCMP alerted the public to the closure, but did not provide details about what happened. They were enforcing the closure about one kilometre north of the park gate.

“No vehicles are allowed in the area and will be turned around. Expect delays,” police said.

The closure applied to everyone, and those who have reserved day passes to hike were not allowed through, according to the park operator.
