Mountain Brow Multi-Use Pathway Feasibility Study

Project Overview

In consultation with the public and stakeholders, the City of Hamilton is undertaking a masterplan study to determine the feasibility of a multi-use trail connecting the Iroquoia Heights Conservation in Ward 8 to the Devil’s Punch Bowl in Ward 9. 

The masterplan document will:

  • identify the location of new pathway connections
  • identify existing path segments that need to be redeveloped and those that can remain
  • identify amenities and connections
  • determine the type of pathway (e.g. 3m wide asphalt trail, on-street bike lane and sidewalk etc.)
  • propose priority timelines for construction

The new multi-use pathway will be known as the MountainBrow Trail.
