Membership is open to anyone willing to abide by the Trail User's Code. Throughout the year members receive newsletters which provide information regarding:
group activities (hikes, cross-country ski outings)
trail re-routes and trail grooming activities
meetings, slide presentations
general interest items including information from or about other hiking organizations
Avon Trail members should always carry their membership card with them as they hike on the trails in the Upper Thames River Conservation Area at Wildwood Park. Your membership card no longer gains you free access and parking at the entrance gate, but does give you free access to enter the park at any of the marked trail heads to Wildwood, for example: km 8.7, km 13.7, km 17.1 & km 18.5 (refer to your Avon Trail Guide, 7th Edition, 4th printing for these marked trail heads).
The business of the organization is dealt with by a Board of Directors. An Annual General Meeting is held in November. The membership and fiscal year end is October 31.
