It extends west to Monarch Wood. He's talking about this area here: https://www.google.com/maps/place/Henry+...6?hl=en-CA

I would love for this to be the case, but does anyone know more about it?

I believe it appears on long term trails planning documents.  There is no detailed plans for it, let alone funding.

Ohhhh, I know the exact section you're talking about! Right before the tunnels. Google says it's the "Filsinger Natural Area", hence my confusion. Yes, that is for sure the roughest, most "disconnected" section of the whole trail. Definitely due for an upgrade. Is there a list somewhere that shows timelines for trails like this to be completed?

That's my backyard! Smile

The path to the far left is the actual Walter Bean Trail.  The middle path is used by the city when they use backhoes, etc to dredge out the storm water ponds every 5 years or so.  Its also used by the kids to access the ponds to catch frogs.

The path to the right leads directly into the 1st pond, and I'm sure the city has some reason for that (and the other access ramp on the 2nd pond)

I love the Walter Bean trailhead... about 30 years ago I made a donation to get my name on a trailhead sign, and never knew where it was placed.  When I moved to this neighbourhood 5 years ago, we walked down to the river and found my name... It was meant to be! Smile

Looks more like someone crashed into it. Hope they weren't injured.

So alongside the roundabout work on Ottawa South, the sidewalks on the south side of the road have been torn up much further west than the main project - beyond Strasburg, I think to the McLennan Park entrance.

The only reason I can see for doing that is to put in an MUT. Are there any official sources on this?

In another area - is there a MUT going in along new Bingemans Centre Dr/Shirley?  Theres a lot of space on the north side that is graded...

Has anyone seen a motorbike using the trails in Kitchener lately?

Not the by-law dirtbike, not a mountain bike with a little engine on it, not an e-bike, but an actual motorbike.

I could have sworn I've seen one along the IHT trail near West and Victoria a few times in the last week or so.
Everyone move to the back of the bus and we all get home faster.
