Rockfall closes trail to Paul’s Tomb on Kelowna’s Knox Mountain

Crews assessing safety of the area and clearing the large rocks that fell on the trail.

Kelowna city hall says a rockfall has temporarily closed the trail leading to Paul’s Tomb on Knox Mountain.

According to the city, a few large rocks came down on the trail trail Tuesday.

The trail will be temporarily closed until city crews and a geotechnical expert are able to assess the situation and safely clear-up the debris.

The closure is between the Ogopogo trail and the northern end of the Paul’s Tomb trail. The city is asking that park and trail users avoid that section of trail until  crews determine when it will be safe to re-open.

There are signs indicating the closure at both ends of Paul’s Tomb trail.

All other trails at Knox Mountain Park are still open.
