Scanlon Creek Conservation Area - Evergreen Trail, Section Closed
A section of the
Evergreen trail has been temporarily closed until further notice due to trail
and infrastructure hazards. The large bridge along this section has been
closed, cutting off access to this trail section. The status of this bridge and
this trail connection will be reviewed in the coming months, and a final
decision will be made. Please avoid the south-west corner of the Evergreen
trail within Scanlon Creek and instead use the Chickadee Trail as a connector trail
for this section.
Nokiidaa and Tom Taylor Trails (September 2022 to Spring 2023)
The Regional Municipality of York is inspecting and rehabilitating the York Durham Sewage System forcemain through the Town of Newmarket. Access to Nokiidaa/Tom Taylor trails and some pathways in the Wesley Brooks Conservation Area may be temporarily restricted while investigation work is taking place. Read full notice (with map) from the Regional Municipality of York here.
Durham Regional Forest
As of July 7, 2022, all trails and tracts are open for visitors to enjoy, with one small area in the Timbers Tract remaining closed due to ongoing work. We thank all visitors for their patience as we worked diligently to clean up from the storm system that swept through Southern Ontario on Saturday May 21, 2022.
Scanlon Creek Conservation Area - Creekside Trail Closure
Following a major flood event, the boardwalk on the Evergreen Trail and the Creekside Trail at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area are no longer safe and have been closed until further notice.
