Stamm Woods Seasonal Re-route Km 104.6 – Maple Sap Collection

May 1st to January 31st Route: The trail turns right (E) [do not cross fence] remaining on the south side of the wire fence, on the same municipal path for another 130m. At the powerline (43.492273, 80.590755) it leaves the municipal path and continues another 100m following the fence (on left) with a storm water management area on the right.  The trail turns left (N), enters a privately owned sugar bush.  The trail passes through the sugar bush  and emerges on Benjamin Rd at km 105.0.

February 1st to April 30th Route:  The trail crosses through an opening in the wire fence to the north side and onto the edge of a cropped field. Immediately it turns right (E) and follows the wire fence for approximately  200 m. Where the fence meets the woodlot, the trail turns left (N) following the edge of the cropped field (fence on the right). The trail continues north and emerges on Benjamin Rd. This route avoids the sugar bush during maple sap collection [ Another generous landowner].

Do not hike in woodlots during hunting season, November 1 to December 15.

The Avon Trail is closed in its entirety on December 25 every year as a courtesy to our generous landowners.
