TRAIL CHANGE ORILLIA SECTION (MAP 18)

There has been a loss of permission to use a section of the Orillia Club’s trail, specifically the western half of the trail running between the 10thand 9thlines of Oro-Medonte.  We are working on a solution, but hikers are to proceed no further west along that section than the posted “No Trespassing”sign.  Likewise do not use the section from Line 9 N going east (it is also posted “No Trespassing”).   See the revised Map 18 with cross hatches on the closed section.

Oro Medonte Section Trail Maintenance – Christine Cornu

A couple of weeks ago we did our trail maintenance.  One area always gives us grief and this year it was no different.  The section between Peter St. and Vasey Road (County Road 23) – right in the middle of that section it was once again too wet to get into.  Very swampy and of course with this wet spring it did not help this year. I would like to warn any hikers who may be attempting to hike in this area to be aware that it is impassable and they should continue along the road – that is Line 5 until they reach Vasey Road.
