Grand Opening of hickling Recreational Trail
Grand Opening of hickling Recreational Trail connects Barrie to Springwater Midhurst / June 28, 2017 – The County of Simcoe welcomed local partners from the City of Barrie and the Township of Springwater and representatives from funding partners Hydro One Limited and Trans Canada Trail for the grand opening of the Hickling Recreational Trail today.
The Hickling Recreational Trail is the first multi-use trail that directly connects Barrie to Springwater and is one of four additional trail connections being constructed over the summer that will allow residents using non-motorized means of transportation to move between the two municipalities. These five sections of new trails will also complete an 11 kilometre gap in the Trans Canada Trail between Springwater and Barrie and help form part of the 165 km Simcoe County Loop Trail which will launch later this summer. The Hickling Recreational Trail is 1.5 km in length, has an average width of 3 metres and has been designed to be accessible, for non-motorized uses with a firm gravel surface with screenings.
This Active Transportation Infrastructure project, which includes all five trail sections, cost a total of approximately $600,000. This includes $103,750 in combined funding from the Trans Canada Trail and Hydro One Limited ($90,000); up to $103,750 from the Government of Canada through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program (CIP 150); and $400,000 from the County of Simcoe.
