Grey County has completed the Recreational Trails Master Plan. This Plan is to help the County manage our forests and trails and plan for the future.

Grey County owns approximately 8,500 acres of forest (45 individual forest properties) and 77 km of CP Rail Trail from Owen Sound to Dundalk. These forests and their recreational trails are enjoyed by many people for a variety of activities.

We have appreciated all of the participation with regard to this project. The plan has been informed by stakeholder groups and members of the community to determine all needs and concerns of different groups and trail users. Staff believe the plan takes a balanced approach for all forest and trail user groups. Grey County forests and trails are for everyone to enjoy.

Questions regarding the Recreational Trails Master Plan can be posed via email to trails@grey.ca, or contacting Sarah Johnson, Intermediate Planner/Forestry-Trails Coordinator, at 519-372-0219 ext.1241.
