2016 trail information
- The Woodlands trail and the Reeds & Rushes trail in Dalvay will be closed until further notice.
- The access road to Robinsons Island and the Robinsons Island Trail System, which was closed due to wet and muddy trail conditions, has now been re-opened to visitors. The only exception is the pump track, which is used by cyclists.
- Beach access beyond the boardwalk on the Greenwich Dunes Trail is temporarily closed while repairs are made to the stairs. In order to protect the fragile dunes system, visitors are not permitted to scale the dunes around the closure, and are encouraged to use the designated beach access from the Tlaqatik trail or at the main beach area.
