Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)

Hike Route Overview:

We will begin our adventure on the Dr. R.S. Murray Forest Trails and continue onto the Wildwood Lake Trail to marker 4 and back. The trails have elevation changes and mixed forest/scrub land making them interesting for winter adventures. We may have a nice view of the lake too.

Recommendations: Please bring snacks if you need them and water, layered clothing for the conditions, and your own snowshoes. We will not cancel this event if the snow conditions are poor; we will hike instead.

Location: Meet in the Boston Pizza parking lot, Stratford, 729 Erie Street, Stratford
