The North Shore Trail is a unique multi-use recreational trail running the entire length of Barrie's north shore of Kempenfelt Bay. This former rail corridor provides visitors with direct views of the bay from a wide pathway. Hats are recommended as the adjacent vegetation allows for both sun and shade.
The City of Barrie is looking for your feedback on the updated North Shore Trail Vegetation Management Plan. The plan is used to implement vegetation maintenance work along the trail system, including views from the trail.
