The official opening to the winter season of activities of the Summerstown Trails is scheduled for Sunday, January 13.

Recent snowfall has allowed volunteers to groom the trails for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, and fat bike use. The opening had been delayed due to prevailing icy conditions and lack of snow in the Summerstown Forest.

Friends of the Summerstown Trails volunteers will be on hand, 10 a.m. through 3 p.m., to welcome and assist visitors. Equipment rental is available.

The parking lot is located on the west side of County Road 27 (Summerstown Road), just north of Summerstown Station and the Highway 401 interchange.
