Warning sign for trail closures gun hunting

Trail Conditions

Current as of December 1, 2019

1.  TRAIL CLOSURES for FALL HUNTING

      *Outside of trail closures, it is advised that hikers wear bright colours all through the fall, and keep their dogs leashed.

2-weeks-a (A)
WHEN:  Monday November 4 – Sunday November 10  AND  Monday December 2 – Sunday December 8, 2019.
WHERE:  the entire Maitland Trail

 

 

 

 

 

 

3-months-b (B)
WHEN: October 1st to December 31st, 2019
WHERE: the main trail from Jenkins Corner to Riverbend (7.9 km – 10.5 km)

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.  RE-ROUTE of the MENESETUNG TRAIL

WHEN:  For the foreseeable future
WHERE: The west end of the Menesetung Trail
The trail will no longer be accessible from the Sifto Loop. The new western access point is on the GART (see map), and the rest of the trail eastward is unchanged.  The reason for the closure is due to erosion along the river, and slumping of the slope. New signs have been posted and blazes have been updated. 

3.  ADJUSTMENTS NEAR KM45.3

When hiking on the main trail between Pinery Line and School Rd/Heron Line (trail guide map 7; km 45.3), please be aware of the correct route northward around the cabin.  There have been some people that have cut across close to the cabin – this is trespassing.  We’re asking everyone to be respectful of the land owners’ privacy, and to follow the white TRAIL signs and other markers northward around the cabin.  As construction progresses through the winter and spring, signage and markers will be adjusted as necessary.  Please pay extra attention when hiking/running through this section. This is critical to the continued existence of this section of trail.
