East Mountain Trail Loop
|This joint initiative between the Hamilton Conservation Authority and the City of Hamilton will create a 10km loop trail across Wards 5, 6, and 9. Design of the proposed East Mountain Loop Trail is underway. This trail will be a vital link to the Red Hill Valley Trail system, the Trans-Canada Trail, and the Bruce Trail.|
PUBLIC INFORMATION CENTRE No.2
On May 16, 2012, there will be a public meeting for three City parkland and trail projects: Heritage Green Community Sports Park, Newalta Passive Park and Dog Park, and the East Mountain Trail Loop and joining trail connections. The Public Information Centre will be held from 6:30pm - 8:30pm at the Winterberry Heights Salvation Army located at 300 Winterberry Dr. in Stoney Creek.
Please see below for the display panels to be presented at the public meeting, showing the existing and proposed trails through this area. There are many proposed and existing trail links, including the East Mountain Trail Loop.
Construction of the East Mountain Trail Loop is phased, with Phase 1 (from Felker's Falls to Upper Mount Albion) completed in 2010. Phase 2 (from Mud Street, across the LINC to Stone Church and Mount Albion Conservation Area) is expected to be constructed in Spring 2012. Phase 3 will be an upgrade to the existing paths connecting Winterberry through Valley Park, and is scheduled for construction in 2014. The remainder of the trails are on privately owned lands, and will be constructed as those developments progress.
Please contact Cynthia Graham (contact info at the bottom of this page) with any questions or concerns regarding the East Mountain Trail Loop or any other trail linkages shown on the plans.
