Trail Changes

Tiny section closure at western end – December 2018 – GHTA Map 28

Please be advised that the western end of the Tiny section of the Ganaraska Hiking Trail is currently closed from just west of Crossland Road to Archer Road.
Archer Road is the northern most street on the Wasaga Beach section. A landowner is no longer allowing us permission to use his property, so we are currently looking (and may have found) a reroute that may open later this year.
In the mean time, going east from Archer Road on the Tiny section of the Ganaraska is impossible. So your best option is to pick up the trail again from about 1 km west of Crossland Road on the Tiny Townline. You will see that the road dead ends at a farm. A forest track continues, but that leads to the closed section. Park near the farm on the side of the road and hike east towards the Tiny Marsh along the Townline until further notice.

2013 Ganaraska Guidebook – correction Map 29
Unfortunately, the 4 km blue side trail in the Wye Marsh Wildlife Centre, near Midland, shown on page 41 and map 29 of the 2013 guidebook, has been decommissioned. We apologize for the inconvenience.

As alternate trails in the area, we suggest the many beautiful hiking trails and boardwalks in the Wye Marsh (check in at the Visitor Centre), or nearby Ganaraska Hiking Trail sections, or the Midland and Penetanguishene Waterfront Trails, the Tay Shore Trail, the Sturgeon River Forest Loop Trail, or the Thompson Forest Loop Trail. For a virtual tour or map of some of these trails, go to
