Barrie Trail – New route from Springwater Provincial Park to Fort Willow

I was recently contacted by a hiker asking about the trail heading west from Springwater Provincial Park towards Fort Willow. This trail was changed last year due to a residential development project between Snow Valley Road and Seadon Road. Now, instead of going south from Snow Valley Road to Seadon Road the trail stays on Snow Valley Road and then turns north on Vespra Valley Road (at the Snow Valley Ski Resort) to meet the Simcoe County Rail Trail and then continue west to Fort Willow. The following diagram shows the ‘before and after’. If you are using the 2013 Ganaraska Map book this change affects maps #21 and #22.
