2015 promises to be a great year for the Crow Wing Trail Association. We are now connected to Winnipeg via the Floodway and we have received an additional grant for trail maintenance. Trail maintenance will start in May. Check here regularly for updates.
BEFORE VENTURING OUT:
- Check here for a list of trail sections on dirt roads, which should be avoided if there have been recent rains.
- See below for areas to be aware of, as well as re-routes.
- Check trail conditions if going on trail south of St. Malo. Conditions are much more variable as trail is mostly off-roads until Emerson. Trail maintenance should be completed before you venture out.
- Contact our Trail Boss directly via “Feedback” with any issues you may encounter on trail.
Areas to be aware of:
- See no. 2 below.
- Twin Creek Road close to St. Mary’s Road, north of St. Adolphe. The road has been washed up and has been filled with large rocks. The crossing will be completed in 2015 by Minister of Infrastructure and Transportation. One can detour by using Sood Road and PR 210.
- Bridge burnt and impassible on Sood Rd. just south of Gauthier Rd. north of Niverville. Detour to PR 200 is dirt road south of Gauthier Rd.
- Culvert damaged at the north end of trail along east side of farmer’s field east of La Rochelle. Will be fixed in summer of 2015.
Trails Manitoba and Trans Canada Trail approved the following re-routes on the Crow Wing Trail in 2014:
- New trail section and pedestrian bridge in Parc Carillon – St-Pierre-Jolys
- Moving trail east of Moose Creek Road south of St. Malo. Trail now keeps going east across Hwy 59 when leaving St. Malo. New route is signed. Once you cross Hway 59 going west, the section going south will be upgraded in the summer of 2015 if grant applications are successful.
- Moving trail east of pasture southeast of Ridgeville.
