REGIONAL FOREST CLOSURE

04/03/2020

We have received notice that effective Saturday April 4th the Halton Region forest tracts which contain our trails are CLOSED. This is part of an emergency measure to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Fines for violating this closure may be issued without warning. If you’re fined under the Emergency Measures Act the fine could easily be into the thousands of dollars…

Please stay home, practice physical distancing and proper hand hygiene.

We will update you when the trails re-open.

    Does this include Hungry Hollow in Georgetown?

    Hi,
    What is the difference walking on the street than on trails??
    We can walk and get fresh air on trails and practice social distancing?
    I just don’t understand why?

      Hi Mori, we aren’t responsible for the closure and can’t directly answer.

      On the Halton website, the concerns listed surround people using the forest for gatherings and issues of crowding.

      It seems that people don’t just spread out allover the forest like one might assume, they clump in parking lots and bump into each other on the single-track trails.

      Similar issues occurred at Conservation Halton’s Hilton Falls and resulted in their closure.

      Sorry.
