‘Stunning’ area to host trail walk

February 18, 2020, Simcoe, ON – The area in and around Long Point Eco-Adventures has been referred to as a “must-visit”, “stunning”, “relaxing”, and “a wonderful escape” by folks online.

Local residents will have an opportunity to take in the scenic views during the free Pathways for People Trail Walk Feb. 23 at 2 p.m.

Pathways for People is a community coalition that advocates for the development and improvement of connected pathways in Norfolk. They encourage regular use of trails, sidewalks and roadways for health, recreation and active transportation.

The event begins at The Long Point Eco-Adventures Marshview Patio (1730 Front Rd, St Williams) and continues for 2.7 KM along the Turkey Point Bluff – which provides great sightlines of both the Turkey Point Marsh and Inner Bay. The walk is one of two Pathways for People hosts every year.

“Each year we like to pick a different location to host a winter walk and showcase Norfolk County’s connected trail system and the benefits of a walkable community,” said Gordon Mason, Chair of Norfolk Pathways for People.

Participants will not only be surrounded by Carolinian forest, but volunteers will note the site’s significance, history, ecological processes, features, complexity, and sensitivity throughout the proceedings.

Those taking part are reminding to always stick to the posted routes, wear layers and proper footwear, and bring a cell phone in case of emergency.
