CITY PARKS -- A small rock slide has caused Spokane City Parks officials to temporarily close the rail trail  between the new Ben Burr Trailhead at West Liberty Park and the Liberty Aquatic Center entrance off Pittsburg Street.

The rock slide occurred earlier this week near the western end of the Ben Burr trail.  Park staff cleared the trail, but the city Risk Management Department advised that a portion of the trail should be temporarily closed, said parks spokeswoman Nancy Goodspeed.

Barricades and caution tape have been set up at each end the closure and near the slide itself.
