Town Winter Trail Operations & Information

The Town of The Blue Mountains would like to remind residents that winter trails at the Tomahawk Recreational Complex and the Georgian Trail are open for public use and will be maintained throughout the winter season.

Tomahawk Recreational Complex

The groomed trails at Tomahawk are open for public use from sunrise to sunset. The Town asks that members of the public maintain a one-way traffic flow to allow space for both cross-country skiers and general usage. Please note that paid parking is available, and resident parking passes must be displayed at all times. For more information on the Tomahawk trail loop, please view the trail map.

 

Georgian Trail

The Town will continue to groom the Georgian Trail throughout the winter season. The Georgian Trail is a multi-use trail for walking, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, fat biking, and other eco-friendly activities. There will not be set tracks for cross-country skiing on the Georgian Trail due to limited space.

 

Before You Go & Practicing Trail Etiquette

The Town would like to emphasize that motorized vehicles and gas-powered machines are not  permitted on the Georgian Trail or at the Tomahawk Recreational Complex. In addition, all dogs must be leashed, and please remember to pick up after your pets. Please also respect the Town’s natural areas  by taking all garbage with you. When using the public trails, please share the trail and be respectful to those around you and remember to remove your skis or snowshoes when crossing a road.

 

Portable washrooms can be found at the following locations:

  • Grey St. in Thornbury
  • Camperdown Rd. and Lakeshore Rd. West in Craigleith

As a reminder, when enjoying a public space please remember to practice 2-metre physical distancing, wash your hands regularly and stay at home if you are sick. In addition, the Town would like to emphasize that common touchpoints within public outdoor spaces are not sanitized or cleaned after each use.
