    I'm pleased to say the Nashville trail alignment map is up

    A big thank you to all stakeholders who participated. This will be a big boost to the trail network on the Humber River and to cyclists in general.

    I'm pleased to say the Nashville trail alignment map is up-nrmt_drafttrailplan_oct2013.jpg

    highlights:

    -construction of 2 bridges over the humber river
    -roughly 12km of multi use (cycling trail)
    -several trail heads
    -2 connector trails east-west
    -part of interregional trail system

    Nice work!

    What have they decided on as a tread surface?
    Please enjoy seeing this terrible collection of me - something wonderful is about to happy.

    the 2 connector trails will be crushed stone (east/west), the area where these trails run is pretty soft. plus these connector trails are also part of the sustainable transportation network plan of the region. the north/south trails will be natural surface. some smaller connector trails not shown will also be natural surface.

    yup no wood chips. the next tract in this trail network will be albion hills (bolton tract plan has been done) followed by the glen haffy connector. even though you can ride this mega trail now, it's pretty rough with alot of hike-n-bike. once all the four tracks are joined together it will be around 40 km's of continuous trail along the river.

    GPS'd a connector trail in the Nashville tract today. Roughly 2.5km. Snow was not deep, saw a woodpecker and fresh deer tracks. We were pleasantly surprised to find the Humber River ice still fairly thick in this section. We will be able to ride it again, maybe Sunday.

    We walked the alignment several times to get the feeling of the flow and slope. We tried different alignments before the final GPSing

    The ice storm knocked over many trees and branches so it was difficult going.

    We snowshoed the Nashville Track new trail alignment down to the Humber River. Snow was deep in the forest. The river was snow covered, solid but spongy in sections.

    Well we are almost at the end of one phase and are moving in to the shovel/dirt phase. Funding is being secured in the seven figure range which is quite exciting and will complement the unique nature/stakeholders of this area.

    Rumour has it that some of our posters want to ask questions about this trail project. Since this thread already exists, it's the best place to ask relevant questions.

    As the wheel rolls, what kind of distance do you think is within the segments marked "Multi-Use Trail" (assuming this denotes the trail sections approved for bike usage), about 5-6km?
