What is happening
Tom Thomson Trail
Trail clean up today of old rotting boardwalks near the Roebuck Campground. The boardwalks are gone, next week we will add gravel in their place for a better walking/riding surface. Right now the surface is uneven and full of roots. Be careful.
The Trail is now 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.
