    is the section from Chedoke to Rifle Range Road

    paved? The stretch along the tracks that was gravel had a lot of glass and it was easy to flat along there. I am asking if they have paved that section.

    Yes, it's paved all the way to Fortino's now.

    The extension over the 403 is a great (and now 'legal') alternative to get across the 403. Hopefully the local residents permit the extension through the golf course. The new path is a great addition for recreational cyclists, but for actual commuting purposes, as with many of the off-street paths and bike lanes in Hamilton, it ends abruptly in a situation (being Aberdeen) that isn't very conducive to encourage casual cyclists to ride more.

    anotherone wants you to know garage monster...
    when the trail is completed from Chedoke to Dundurn ... there are already four stop signs between those two streets cyclists seldom obey. Motorists will expect cyclists to opbey the law and stop too
