Trans Canada Trail Remains Closed from Rossburn to Angusville

Although the State of Local Emergency in the RM of Rossburn ended and residents have returned to their homes the Trans Canada Trail will remain closed.
High water levels on the Birdtail Creek destabilized the former CN Rail line between Rossburn and Angusville. The embankments’ slopes are crumbling and considered unstable. All Trail users are advised to stay off the Trail for their personal safety and to prevent further damage to the rail bed.
A full assessment will be made when conditions allow, but the Trail is expected to remain closed throughout the spring and summer. Trail users are encouraged to explore trails in Riding Mountain National Park and other segments of the Trans Canada Trail as alternatives.
The closure affects only the Rossburn Subdivision Trail from Rossburn to Angusville. East of Rossburn and West of Angusville the Trail remains open.
In 1998 the Rossburn Subdivision line was purchased from CN Rail and became the first segment of Manitoba’s Trans Canada Trail. The former rail line is owned by Recreational Trail Holdings Inc. and managed by the Rossburn Subdivision Trail Association with the support of thirteen municipal governments.
Trails Manitoba and the Rossburn Subdivision Trail Association extend our deep sympathy to the families affected by the flood and thank everyone involved with the flood protection effort. We are grateful for the quick action undertaken by the Province of Manitoba, municipal staff and community volunteers to keep people and property safe.
Trail conditions will be updated at www.trailsmanitoba.ca
