What is happening
with the
Tom Thomson Trail

CAUTION! It is hunting season. If you do go out on trails, wear bright clothing and make noise.

CAUTION: The boardwalks on the section of the Tom Thomson Trail between the 11th Line and Grey #112 are damaged and are not safe. We are in the process of removing them. Please take care when walking in this section.


NOTICE: The Tom Thomson Trail section of Sideroad 22 (from where the road currently ends to 350 metres east) will be closed for road construction starting September 16, 2021. The rest of the trail will remain open.

New Trail Markings: Look for the yellow band on trees. We have just started marking this way, so all the trail is not done yet.

Rugged Conditions: The Silcote East Section that follows next to the Meaford Tank Range is in very poor shape. Large rocks protrude on the surface with deep ruts and potholes filled with water.

Pavement Damage: Because of the high water levels on Georgian Bay as well as recent storms, a section of the pavement along the shoreline trail in Owen Sound has broken away. There is also rubble on top of the pavement. Please be careful when cycling or walking along this section.

Washouts: With the recent heavy rain, downhill sections of the trail have ruts and washouts. Please be careful when descending hills.
