Please note that as of 4:00 pm today, Tuesday, March 16, Lanfear Hill is closed to pedestrians due to sloughing and ongoing erosion of the gravel shoulder. Due to the narrow roadway and steep slopes, this route is no longer deemed safe for pedestrian use at this time.
The City will have a geotechnical safety assessment of the area completed immediately to determine our next steps. Full vehicle use of the road currently remains in place.
Alternate routes for pedestrians: Please use the Howe Creek Trail network or the pedestrian path that runs from Mountain Vista Drive/Bailey Street to the bottom of Lanfear Hill.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation and patience while we evaluate the situation further to ensure your safety.
