Well with the grand opening today….The Gap has been filled and what an achievement! I think it’s time to celebrate all those who were involved in making this link become a reality! So what better why then to come on out and help celebrate the official opening of the Island Lake Boardwalk – connecting the existing north and south shore trails of Island Lake.
Countless hours of volunteer dedication, together with tremendous collaboration between CVCA, the Towns of Mono and Orangeville, the County of Dufferin, the Federal Government; Shell Canada, Brookfield Homes; area service clubs and an incredible number of area residents who donated time and money have made this long-held vision of a connected Island Lake trail a reality!

Back in 2007, trails stakeholders identified the completion of the Island Lake Trail as one of five shared priorities to be completed within 3 to 5 years to begin establishing a connected network of trails and cycling lanes across Headwaters. The Island Lake trail is viewed by many to be a hub for the region’s trail network!
The number of people using the trail are sure to climb exponentially as more people hear about it….You’ve been warned..LOL
The trail is used about 50,000 times last year according to the people that run the CVC. That includes multiple uses by the same people.
