Expansion of The O.R. Side Trail Oct 2023

With the generous permission of the landowner (Province of Ontario) and the hard work of several trail maintenance volunteers, we are happy to announce a new section of The O.R. Side Trail is now open.  This “community pathway” has existed for quite some time, but the GHTC has permission to adopt it into our trail network, and maintain it as such.  Which basically means, keep it pruned. 

This is now an interesting loop trail, to explore the northern part of The O.R. Side Trail, just south of York Road, including Clythe Creek, the Eramosa River, and the big ponds on the grounds of the former Ontario Reformatory lands.

One of our ‘Monday work parties’ in October cut back the thick vegetation along that yellow pathway on the map and red circle shows where a new bridge to cross a culvert was built.
