A nature trail that connects neighbourhoods in Halton Hills is now open to the public.
The Hungry Hollow Trail network is 7 km long and winds through Georgetown connecting downtown to Hall Rd. through diverse natural areas that include forests and a boardwalk through wetland areas and bridge river crossings.
The trail is meant to provide barrier-free access to nature as well as to give residents active living opportunities and balance recreation with environmental preservation.
Started in 2007 with a phased-in approach to planning, the final section of the trail was completed recently linking Cedarvale Park and Main St. S.
The $2.8 million cost of trail was spread out over the time period and carried out by Town staff with approvals by Credit Valley Conservation and the Ontario Ministry of Environment.
“I am so happy to see the completion of this trail network,” said Mayor Ann Lawlor. “I know that this initiative has been a long time coming to fruition and is extremely important to residents. Trails have consistently ranked near the top as to why residents love Halton Hills.”
The completion of the Hungry Hollow trail adds to the over 30 km of trails in Halton Hills.
