The city is spreading fresh gravel on 28th St. north of Sidereal 24. Tom Thomson Trail users be aware that it is soft and thick and difficult to steer 
in.... At least until it rains and packed.

Beware of ticks

posted Jul 12, 2017, 7:16 PM by Thomas Hakala

With the wet summer we are having, ticks can be an issue. It is a good idea to wear long socks and long pants when walking on any woodland trails. Also, please use proper footwear when hiking on the Tom Thomson Trail. The trail surface is natural and uneven in some areas and sturdy footwear is advised.

WASHOUTS

Caution: There are a number of washouts on the Tom Thomson Trail after the rainstorm on Thursday. The 24 Side Road section is really bad. Our volunteers are working to fix the problems, but in the mean time take care on the trail.

A bridge will be replaced on Grey Road 112 north of Highway 26 between July 4 and August 25, 2017. A detour will follow Sideroad 22 and the 7th Line, which will mean heavier then normal traffic. Both of these roads are part of the Tom Thomson Trail. Please use caution during this period.

The winter was tough on our trail. Here are more things to watch out for.

• Side Road 23 has many many pot holes both in gravel section and
on the tar and chip section closest to Concession 6 north.

• Fresh gravel (deep too) on Side Road 30, just past Concession 6
north.

• Unopened road allowance at end of Side Road 30 still very wet.
