Mosaic takes care to manage and protect the forest for the future. We govern access to ensure the safety of the public, reduce the risk of wildfires, prevent damage to sensitive plant ecosystems, and protect endangered species habitat.
Where available, access opportunities to Mosaic private forest lands are for individuals and small groups in designated locations on weekends only. Please refer to the Current Access Opportunities on this page for details. Overnight stays are not permitted except in designated camping areas.
Access opportunities will change based on operational and weather conditions and may be restricted to ensure public and worker safety, protection of the environment, and the security of assets.

Access points that include a number, are branch roads. Where the name of an access point includes a number, that number is the distance in kilometers of the branch road from the Mainline. For example Comox 9.1km is a branch road located at 9.1km along the Comox Mainline.
Access opportunities to Mosaic private forest lands are for individuals and small groups in designated locations on weekends only. Where the weekend is a stuatory or other holiday, access opportunities will be extended through that weekend holiday period.
