Hiking the Avon Trail in April and May sometimes is more challenging than in wintery January conditions. Fallen trees or limbs present obstacles until they can be cleared away. Volunteers for the 30 or so different sections conduct an inspection. Based on their findings, more volunteers with chain saws plan to cut a path through fallen debris. If you wish to join this team, chain saw training is provided.
Every effort is made to keep the trails safe for hiking. If you encounter a fallen tree on a trail section, take a photo, note the location and send this info to Newsletter@AvonTrail.ca. We will take steps to get the path cleared.
