Week 3: Take the trail less travelled
We challenge you to take the trail less travelled. Tom Taylor Trail along Fairy Lake may be the most popular trail in Newmarket, but did you know we have a wide range of other trails you can visit as well? Have you visited the Dave Kerwin Trail on Gilpin Drive, or one of the trails within York Region’s Forest Tract? There are over 2,400 hectares of protected land, and 23 properties with more than 150 km of trails for the public to use.
With more people heading outdoors for much needed exercise and for mental health purposes during the pandemic, the Tom Taylor Trail has gotten extremely busy and has made it extremely difficult to ensure safe physical distancing can be maintained at all times. Help keep the trails safe for all by taking the trail less travelled or consider going at off-peak times.
Share your favourite trail route with us on social media an tell us why! Don't forget to tag @TownofNewmarket and use #ShareNewmarketTrails on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
