Rockwall trail fire
My wife tried to book the rockwall trail today for aug 19. She was told the trail was closed as of now and that it will likely still be closed then.

Just a heads up for anybody planning on hiking it soon. Check with parks before you drive there.

Wow. I knew something was burning in Numa Creek, but I didn't realize they were expecting so much lasting damage.

Twitter report today or yesterday said it went from 3 or 5 hectares to like 50 in a hurry due to high winds connected to some thunderstorms if my memory serves me right. Between flooding and fires, we're losing a lot of trails.

It isn't summer unless the kootenay np is on fire!

I just talked with someone from the Kootenay Visitor Centre. She said that the fire is about 50 hectares burning on the north side of the Numa Creek Drainage. Apparently today Parks is trying to create a firebreak near an avalanche path to help stop the fire from spreading.

Currently the Rockwall Trail is closed from Numa Pass to Tumbling Pass... Probably because they don't want people to get stuck at Numa Creek if the fire goes west.

I've got a couple nights this weekend at Floe Lake, which is still open to Numa Pass. Hopefully the smoke isn't too bad.

Anyone have any suggestions for a day scramble near Floe Lake?
