The Matlset Road system is built on very steep south and west-facing
slopes above Matlset Narrows and Bedwell Sound, 13 km northeast of
Tofino, B.C. (Figure 1). Timber on the surrounding slopes was
harvested about 10 years ago. Several road sections have nearly been
lost to severe landsliding; fill along the crest of much of the road system
is highly distressed and will likely fail.
Deactivation work with a tracked excavator and eventual vegetation
reclamation will have positive results and are the only possible means of
preventing or limiting future landsliding along the substandard road
