Summerstown Trails to hold annual clean-up day on Saturday, Nov. 21

The Friends of the Summerstown Trails (FOTST) will be holding their Annual Clean-up Day on Saturday, November 21, starting at 9:00 a.m.

Given that there is less garbage/litter on the trails (good news!), volunteers will also be put to work removing the fallen branches and unwanted growth on the cross-country ski and snowshoe trails. 

FOTST board members, and other FOTST members, and volunteers will be on hand. The Summerstown Forest, which contains the trails, is located on County Road 27 (Summerstown Road), between Summerstown Station and the Glen Road intersection. 

About FOTST: The Friends of the Summerstown Trails (FOTST) is incorporated as a non-profit group run by volunteers with a stated mandate to maintain and develop green, recreational trails for healthy outdoor activities in the Summerstown Forest. In recent years, an impressive amount of progress has been made as trails have been improved and expanded, new grooming equipment and signage obtained and new activities offered, such as races, instructional lessons, outings for schools and seniors and Family Day activities. Rental of XC ski and snowshoe packages is also offered on weekends.
