KVR access blocked in Kaleden

Kettle Valley Trail users will now have to detour along Alder Avenue after private landowner fences off property in Kaleden

Just in time for the Christmas holidays

A portion of the Kettle Valley railway bed through Kaleden that is privately owned has been fenced off and posted with “No trespassing” signage.

The section of former railbed is cut in half near its south end by Alder Avenue in Kaleden. The property owner has erected a four foot high section of wire fence across the entrance to the trail on both sides of Alder Avenue. Another section of fence has been put up across the southern boundary of the property.

Trail users will now have to detour along Alder Avenue to avoid the section of private property, which at one time contained a railway siding.It was put up for sale in 2008, and purchased by private interests in December of 2010. The province expressed interest in obtaining an easement through the property for the trail in 2008, but neglected to act prior to the property being sold last year.
