Trail Reroutes


From time to time, GHTC trails may need to be rerouted for a variety of reasons. Please obey instructions on the signs you see along the trail (eg. closures during hunting season).



Please refer to this Handbook for all current trail routes on the Radial Line Trail, Starkey Trail, Speed River Trail, and Kissing Bridge Trail.

Make the following reroute changes to your 2013 Handbook:

It then turns immediately right and heads south, parallel to the road for about 0.3km. At this point it emerges back onto the 6th the property driveway and then turns east opposite Pineridge Drive.”



If you have the previous edition of the Handbook (10th edition, 2009)...

Section
Subsection Addendum
22 2 Watson Road to Puslinch/ Milton Boundary Replace part of sentence....."then rejoins a series of dirt roads....reforested with conifers" with "then crosses a dirt road onto a grass access road heading east, descends steeply into a lovely deciduous valley, ascends the shallower other side of the valley and enters a coniferous forest. In this area the Arkell Side Trail joins the main trail." You emerge…
22 2 Arkell Side Trail "The Arkell Side Trail runs through some up and down terrain back to the south-west, roughly paralleling Arkell Road, terminating at the Starkey Hill loop trail parking lot.
28 5 5th Line to 6th Line Milton Add a period after "Blue Heron Scout camp" and replace the remainder of the paragraph with the following:
"Within sight of the road, the trail turns sharply right and, after passing through woods and a meadow, emerges on a large field. It follows the east (left) edge of this field and a parking lot, before coming out on the 6th Line and following it south (to the right) for about 800 metres.
28 5 Peter Kallaste/ Beaver Pond Side trail The end of the last sentence should read (change is in italics):
"...about 4oo metres then turn right into the woods to rejoin the main trail."
34 7 Dublin Line to Highway 25 Delete complete section.
Replace with "The trail re-enters cedar forest some 20mtrs south from emerging onto Dublin Line from Section 6. The trail continues through the forest for about 1km emerging onto damper open ground and crossing 2 drainage ditches. Proceed through scrub woods and then walk atop piles excavated from the drainage ditch until emerging onto views of two fields. Follow the markers along the left hand field for c.60mtrs before turning east into a cedar wood. Watch and follow blazes carefully here as there are a number of well worn informal trails. Coming out of the cedars, the trail follows scrub and younger woods just north of a cultivated field. At the north east corner of the field the trail takes a hard 90 degree turn south, skirts the field and then follows a grassy laneway past partially demolished farm buildings (No trespassing), through a sumac covered outcrop and through a cultivated field marked with sighting posts and a stile over the field fence. The trail emerges onto 25 Sideroad ,50 mtrs from Highway 25."
34 7 Moroz Side Trail Add new paragraph.
The Moroz side trail begins at the south side of Greenore park in Acton. The trail runs along the side of a fenced yard and the wetland. It enters cedar forest and meets the main trail after c.150mtrs at the top of a rocky outcrop. Street parking is available on Greenore Crescent.
