(HUNTSVILLE, ON) The Town of Huntsville is excited to announce the Grand Opening of the Hunters Bay Trail Extension. Media and members of the community are invited to attend the formal ribbon cutting ceremony by Mayor Scott Aitchison on Friday May 25 at 1pm, located at the end of East Airport Road in Huntsville. Everyone is welcome.

The Hunters Bay Trail is a walking, running, and cycling trail that is 3.6 kilometres in length stretching along the Muskoka River starting in Town at the Centre Street Bridge. The trail extension completed in the fall of 2017 is an important local, regional, provincial, and national link to connect sections of the Hunters Bay Trail to the Trans Canada Trail. The extension includes floating trails, bridges and boardwalks and has added 858m of public trail to Huntsville’s waterfront.  

Please join Mayor Scott Aitchison, members of Council and the Chair of The District Municipality of Muskoka John Klinck to celebrate the completion of the Hunters Bay Trail and the individuals, organizations and businesses who have helped make it happen.
