Summerstown Trails to host annual clean-up day on Saturday

sean Oct 31, 2017 - 2:00pm

The Friends of the Summerstown Trails (FOTST) will be holding their Annual Clean-up Day on Saturday, November 4, starting at 9 a.m.

Given that there is less garbage/litter on the trails (good news!), volunteers will also be put to work removing the fallen branches and unwanted growth on the XC ski and snowshoe trails. 

The trails are located in the Summerstown Forest, on County Road 27 (Summerstown Road) between the 401 interchange and the Glen Road crossing.

FOTST president this year is Paul Couture. He and board members Vic Leroux and Jean-Pierre Tibi will be leading the activities.

The Friends of the Summerstown Trails (FOTST) is incorporated as a non-profit group run by volunteers with a stated mandate to maintain and develop green, recreational trails for healthy outdoor activities in the Summerstown Forest. In recent years, an impressive amount of progress has been made as trails have been improved and expanded, new grooming equipment and signage obtained and new activities offered, such as races, instructional lessons, outings for schools and seniors and Family Day activities. Rental of XC ski and snowshoe packages are also offered on weekends.
