Hunting Season

The Maitland Trail runs primarily through private property, and since some landowners wish to hunt on their own property, the Maitland Trail is closed and public use is prohibited during hunting season. See dates below.

The GTG, Maitland Woods, Millennium, Sifto Loop and Menesetung Trails are all open during hunting season.
