The Grand Valley Trail in the Elora Gorge Conservation Area is closed at this time.
Until further notice, hikers are asked to walk along Middlebrook Road outside the park. New signs and blazes will show directions.
The Grand River Conservation Authority has been experiencing long standing issues relating to unlawful entry in the park at non-authorized entrances and outside operating hours. As well, they have experienced repeated damage to a fence on the northern section of the park. As a result, hikers are now only permitted to enter the park at official entrances and as registered and paid park users. Hikers are reminded that entering the park at the northern end by the baseball diamond is strictly prohibited and is not sanctioned by the GVTA. Please help reinforce and spread this message if you know of hikers or others using this unofficial access point to the park.
The GVTA is continuing to work with the GRCA to find a satisfactory solution that would respect the authority of the GRCA and allow GVTA members to continue to enjoy the natural beauty of the Elora Gorge Conservation Area.
