Happy Trails to you …. And if you have no interest in the Town trails please delete this e-mail.

I have had a number of inquiries about the completion of the bicycle/walking trail that connects the Tay Shore trail to our waterfront trails through the Tiffin development. According to our Town Planner, Bryan MacKell, the connection may be established this year but will depend upon negotiations with many of the affected property owners.

To follow this trail route description you may want to get a map out. The trail connection should run along the Tiffin waterfront to the Georgian Bay Islands National Park lands - then out onto the Wye Valley Road at the north end of the Doral building - then south along the Road to the intersection of Hwy 12 - then along the road allowance to the CN Bridge - then over the CN Bridge - then over the wood trestle bridge over the Wye River and onto the Tay Shore Trail at Ste. Marie. We will obviously need a few directional signs.

At the other end of our waterfront trail system, the new Midland Loop Trail is being affected by construction. You can still get through on the Rotary Trail but the “loop back” portion has been affected by earth storage from a nearby condominium development. Hopefully the loop trail will be back for the next biking season.

And snowmobile trails? The next Ad-Hoc Snowmobile meeting is scheduled for May 23rd at 7pm at the Town Hall. We should be getting close to a solution by then.
