Notice of Public Open House: Trail Modelling & Development in the Ganaraska Forest

GRCA Administrative Office, Port Hope

Help Shape the Future of Recreation

The Ganaraska Region Conservation Authority (GRCA) owns and manages the 11,000-acre Ganaraska Forest, which includes a recreational program, offering multi-use activities on the property.

In 2024, the GRCA will be undertaking steps to create a GIS-based model to help determine recreational trail locations in the Ganaraska Forest. Once created, this model will be used to run scenarios to recommend and refine recreational trail locations.

The GRCA will be hosting two public open houses seeking feedback on the environmental and trail user criteria used by the GIS model.
