This was before Mark and Jim removed 3 old bridges stacked under it, Tom cut the tree in background and others nearby and the pruning of the trail was done my Richard. Thanks guys. We stumbled upon a group of 30 young tulip trees nearby.

  1. I love this trail. Been on it a couple times this year. Hiked from Paynes Mills to St. Thomas, from John Wise Line to Sunset Car wash and i can’t wait to do the whole trail through. Some people say there is no beauty in Southwestern Ontario, I beg to differ! This trail has lots of beautiful scenery and lookouts on it. I just wish people would not litter on the trail and clean up after their pets. My friend Troy and I clean what we can and clear the paths of fallen trees and branches where ever possible. We may not be members but we don’t mind doing our part to clean up and clear the paths for others to enjoy as well. Here are a couple YouTube videos of us on and enjoying the trail.

  2. Glad you enjoyed the trail and appreciate your help in cleaning up bits and pieces as you go through. We will be doing an end-to-end in the fall celebrating 40 years. You are welcome to join us. Should be posted early September.
    Thanks for sharing the videos.
