Section of The Great Trail closed due to storm damage

The City of Barrie has temporarily closed a section of The Great Trail (formerly known as the Trans-Canada Trail) due to damage sustained from the recent storms and extreme surface water run-off.

The City has closed the section that runs alongside of Whiskey Creek, between Little Avenue and Yonge Street. The damage from the storm and extreme surface water run-off has created challenges for safe passage along this section of the trail, and the City has closed it as a safety precaution until it can be restored.

The restoration work on this section of The Great Trail is scheduled to commence the week of August 10.
