2019-07-24 - Detours are required on sections of the Trail between the Highway 400 trailhead and Sprucedale. The detours are a result of bridge damage caused by unauthorized vehicles, trucks and construction vehicles, exceeding the load capacity of the bridges that are designed for ATV, SxS and Snow Machine traffic. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Detour 1 - South Seguin Estates Road to Hwy 518 This involves heading north on South Seguin Estates Road to Hwy 518 and then turning right (east) for about 6-7 km to the next crossing of the Seguin Trail and Hwy 518. These bridge’s are now closed until material and volunteers are ready to redeck the first one(expecting sometime in September) and the second when funding is secured to replace the entire structure. The replacement is estimated to cost about $300,000 (your trail pass dollars at work).
Detour 2 - Sprucedale west to the first Trail / Hwy 518 crossing. This involves heading out of Sprucedale on Hwy 518 heading west until the first Seguin Trail crossing. The bridge is expected to be repaired in the next few weeks when materials and volunteers are available.

2019-05-10: The Park to Park Trail is officially open. We have some issues on trail including washouts and bridge repairs. Everything should be flagged and is in the process of being repaired. The Trail is still very soft, wet, muddy and there is even some ice in the shadows. Be extra cautious while riding as we are getting even more rain. If you see an issue please post up a note on our Facebook page. Keep an eye out for turtles and give them wide berth; it’s nesting season and they prefer to lay their eggs on the sides of trails.

Park to Park Installs New Trail Signs
If you are out walking, biking or ATVing on the Park to Park Trail System, you will now have a better idea of where you are. Thanks to a donation from CF Moto Canada's WindZone Program, volunteers are busy installing over 100 location signs and posts along the 230 km of trail from Killbear Provincial Park to Algonquin Provincial Park.
According to Park to Park Executive Director, Peter Searle, "The main objective of the new signs is for the safety and convenience of all our users. In case of emergency or a break down, users will now know better exactly where they are on the trail." The signs will mark all lakes, road and river crossings and other points of interest or services on or near the trail.
Park to Park is a registered charity run by over 40 volunteers including the Board of Directors and their many Trail Ambassadors. For more information visit ParkToParkTrail.org.

2017-11-22: And that's a wrap for 2017. The Park to Park Trail is being handed over to the sledders for the snow season. We'll be back as early as late March with information on when the trail will be open to motorized non-snow machine use.
(Please don't use your ATV on the trail during snow season, even if it looks passable. It wrecks the trails for sledders. Consider skis or snowshoes if you need to get out and play in the snow, but watch out for sleds, they move quickly.
