Thank You Landowners

Members of the Avon Trail feel we have a special and valued relationship with the Owners of the Land we cross on our hikes.

We wanted this part of our website to reflect our intent to stay in communication with you and give you an opportunity to communicate with us. 

You will find links below to a number of topics that might be of interest to you and reflect our commitment to establish better lines of communication. 

If you follow these links you will find a document, ‘Land Use Agreement with Owners’, which is the starting point of our relationship with our landowners. 

Also you will find a copy of the ‘Guide for Trail Workers’, and ‘Summary of Insurance Policies’, our ‘Risk Management Policy’ and other items of interest to a landowner. These documents describe what we do to maintain the trail to as close to the standards of the Bruce Trail as we are able.

You will also find a Checklist which gives you an opportunity to communicate with us about your questions, comments or concerns.  If you have an email address that you would like to share with us, we would be happy to communicate with you that way. Your email address will never be used for any other reason other than to communicate with you.

Otherwise – good old Canada Post will work.

Thank you, again, from all of us with the Avon Trail who cherish so much the privilege of hiking across your land. 

We look forward to hearing from you!
