The New Maryland Nature Trails (behind the New Maryland Centre) are a popular destination for walkers, snowshoers, bird watchers, rock lovers, and nature enthusiasts. The trails consist of three unique sections – Fletcher’s Walk, Charter’s Way and Cameron’s Loop. A uniquely designed 42-foot span suspension bridge, an elevated boardwalk, and informational signage all add to the enjoyment of the trails. In recent years the nature trails have enjoyed a surge in popularity, resulting in wear and tear and required refurbishment. In 2018, twelve sections of boardwalk, as well as the covered bridge, were replaced. The remaining 151 metres of boardwalk in Cameron’s Loop was recently removed and replaced with 115 metres of crusher dust and 36 metres of elevated boardwalk. The project cost of $32,000 will be receiving funding from the Community Investment Fund for $15,000. Staff are thrilled to have this last section of the trail upgrade completed.
