The portion of the T'Railway Provincial Park from Gander to Mary March Brook (approximately 45 kilometres west of Badger) is closed to all users until further notice.
Snow is rapidly melting and exposure of the damages resulting from the Thanksgiving 2016 Rain Event is imminent. Users of T'Railway Provincial Park are advised to exercise extreme caution as other areas of the trail may be affected by spring run-off.
To report damage, please contact the Parks Division at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 709-637-2040.
The Department of Environment and Conservation advises that the Terra Nova Bridge in the T'Railway Provincial Park has re-opened to all users.
The Department of Environment and Climate Change, in co-operation with the Department of Transportation and Works and the Newfoundland and Labrador Snowmobile Federation (NLSF) has announced that the last remaining section of the T'Railway Provincial Park in the vicinity of Gander to Glenwood is now open. Assessments, interim repairs and grooming were undertaken by the NLSF as short-term measures to allow snowmobilers access to the T'Railway for the remainder of the 2017 season. Please note that repairs are only temporary and the T'Railway will be closed again when snow starts to melt in the spring.
An updated map of the open sections can be found at www.ecc.gov.nl.ca/parks/parks/trailway/.
