Thanks for the reply!
Is that area closed due to the fires? I had look at my map and its hard to tell if its part of Big Creek Prov Park or something else.
(Sorry for all the questions, just don't want to be a dick and accidentally access closed areas up there)
Sorry about the delay in responding, was away for last week.
Big Creek Park is closed, but SCMP is open.
Tyaughton Creek is mostly in SCMP. I've been told Paradise Creek is in the "Mining and Tourism Area" outside of SCMP so it managed by BC Recreation Trails and Sites but they don't list the trail on their site.
There is an evacuation order on the Cariboo Regional District side, which includes Lone Valley & Prentice Lake (off the end of the Relay Road & Mud FSR) so that trail is closed.
The boundary between Big Creek and SCMP is also the boundary between the Cariboo Fire Center and Kamloops Fire Center.
I've seen varying reports of smoke in Bridge River Valley & SCMP, depends on weather/wind conditions, some days aren't bad.
