Grey County Cycling & Trails Master Plan

Grey County Cycling & Trails Master Plan – Public Consultation to close August 14

Grey County has been developing a cycling and trails master plan over the past number of months. In the spring an open house at the county building allowed interested parties to view maps and make suggestions. Bryan Plumstead, Manager of Tourism – Grey County, sent an email on July 31 stating:

“Grey County is moving forward with our Draft Cycling & Trails Master Plan, and is notifying all partners that public consultation will close August 14, 2020.

Comments and feedback can be made through an on-line form available on our Master Plan Initiatives Page,  or can be sent to the undersigned.”

You can review and comment on the master plan through the link in Bryan Plumstead’s message: Master Plan Initiatives Page, This is your opportunity to share your views and influence our riding in Grey County.

Also, more recently related to our first OSCC gravel ride, there was correspondence with Sarah Johnson, Intermediate Planner/Forestry-Trails Coordinator, who shared:

“Currently, we are considering some different options with regard to trail maintenance, we have not confirmed at this time what those might be. In the past, we would stone dust a section on an annual basis, we have also more recently re-graded the trail, without the addition of extra materials.

I would appreciate knowing what our trail users think, if you had some suggestions please feel free to pass them along.”

Conc. 8 Through Mooresburg

I just heard that Conc. 8, the road that runs north/south through Mooresburg, is being paved after all. Work started today.
Originally the township had said the road would revert to gravel. They wanted drivers to use county road 3 instead. But they were pressured by residents to pave the road again.

This opens up quite a few bike route possibilities for us.
