No Public Access: Scarborough Bluffs

Previously updated: January 31, 2020

Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) is warning of risks due to landslides along the Scarborough Bluffs.

Under such conditions, paths on the tableland at the top of the bluffs can slide out at any moment. Additionally, trails at the base of the bluffs along the lake’s edge have been and can continue to be overcome by debris resulting from landslides.

The risk to public safety is a significant and real concern. Therefore, access to the shoreline has been and will continue to be PROHIBITED for public safety reasons. Signs are posted at access locations where landslide have already occurred and impacted roads and trails.

TRCA will be conducting clean-up of landslides over the next few weeks. We ask that the public refrain from accessing these areas for safety reasons due to equipment use, as well as maintain a minimum distance of two metres from TRCA personnel to adhere to social distancing guidance.
