Here is a list of the current projects we are working on to further our trail network.


PENNIAC BAY WATERSIDE ROUTE

The gap at Penniac Bay on West Hawk Lake is the only gap left along The Great Trail in our region. It is a major safety concern as trail users are forced to jump on to the busy Hwy. 44 to travel this section. With the land sections of the gap complete north and south of the bay, the next phase is to complete the shoreline section. SWTA has all approvals in place to commence with the project but still needs your financial support to ensure it happens. Consider donating to this project today, select "Penniac Bay Waterside Route" from the drop down menu on the Canada Helps donation page.

Canada 150 Connector trails

Located on the South East end of Falcon Lake, the Canada 150 Connector trails seek to connect the vast network of mountain bike and hiking trails at Falcon Trails Resort to The Great Trail. We have completed Phase I of this development with the first layer of gravel down and the trail is now passable, but please keep in mind that Phase II touch up work still needs to be done.
