Kingfisher Trail at Scanlon Creek partially closed until October 2024

A section of the Kingfisher Trail (Location A on map) at the Scanlon Creek Conservation Area is temporarily closed until October 2024 for trail redevelopment and improvements. Work will include:

  • Surface enhancements
  • Grading adjustments
  • Culvert installations
  • Rehabilitation efforts
  • And planting native trees and shrubs for trail and bank stabilization

Due to the sensitive and wet conditions of this part of the Kingfisher Trail and ongoing construction, visitors are asked to avoid the redevelopment area.

For your safety, please obey all trail closure signs, and stay clear of the work zone. As there is no access to the other side of the trail, we recommend using an alternate route.

If you have any questions about the trail redevelopment, please contact: Dan Andrews at
