Georgian Bay Snowriders Trail

Status: Substantially Complete

Overview:

The Georgian Bay Snowriders (GBSR) purchased the old CP rail bed to use as their “C” trail trunk corridor.  The trail travels 10km from Waubaushene to “Hole in the Wall” at the intersection of Hwy 12 and Rumney/Triple Bay Rds. Informal summer use was possible, but was inhibited by overgrowth and drainage issues. In the Fall of 2013 the GBSR invested $25,000 to fix drainage problems, grade the surface, and upgrade signage along the trail to make it useable as a four-season multi-use trail.

Albert Street to Wyebridge

Status: Planning Phase

Overview:

This currently unnamed project aims to link the Town of Midland, and Townships of Tay and Tiny, while providing a connection with trail users and commercial services in Midland (Gas, Food, Accommodations). Diverging from the Tay Shore Trail at the entrance to Midland, it will travel west through the highway commercial area across private and Town land, before turning southwest and connecting with the village of Wyebridge. It’s adoption as a formal four-season multi-use trail will connect existing regional trail corridors.

Wyebridge to Wymbolwood

Status: Planning Phase

Overview:

This route continues from the above project, and travels from Wyebridge west to Wymbolwood Beach on Tiny Beaches Rd.  This route appears in the Tiny Township Trails Master Plan, and mostly utilizes the 7th Concession road allowance that is currently unopened. This trail also has the added feature of linking the Wyebridge and Tiny Community Centers.  The Huronia Airport will be a significant player in seeing this trail come to fruition.

Thompson Road to Tiny Trail

Status: Planning Phase

Overview:

This project aims to fill the gaps between existing trails, and provide a permanent link between Midland, Penetanguishene and Tiny. Formed in large part by existing paths in the Simcoe County Thompson Forest Tract, this trail will allow an uninterrupted connections between the Tiny Rail Trail, Park Street in Penetanguishene, and the Trans-Canada Trail heading to Midland.

Penetanguishene to Awenda Provincial Park

Status: Planning Phase

Overview:

Awenda Provincial Park is one of North Simcoe’s hidden gems, boasting 31km of trails, 17km of groomed ski trails, beaches, and camping. A four-season multi-use trail to the park aims to improve access to local residents, and provide an active transportation link to an under-serviced area of Tiny Township. Route investigation is underway, and will likely utilize a mix of unopened road allowances and private property.
