Grey County is preparing a Recreational Trails Master Plan. This plan will provide a blueprint for future trails projects and requirements. It will be focused on linking community trails to County trails, determining the ultimate use of the CP Rail Trail and looking at trail use and future requirements for trails in some of the 48 forest properties owned by Grey County. The project will develop trail standards for walking trails, bicycle trails and multi-use trails, and considering the compatibility of ATV and snowmobile users with non-motorized users. It will develop criteria to apply for restricting certain trail users to specific areas or trails.
So far, the user groups we have identified include snowmobile, horseback riding, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross country skiing, dog walking, and ATV use. Woodland owners and enthusiasts who are part of BGWA can provide an informed and experienced voice to help ensure the perspective of this undertaking broad and inclusive.
Open house takes place Wednesday November 29, 6PM, Grey County Admin Bldg, 595 9th Ave East, Owen Sound. Click here for more details.
