Kettle Creek Conservation Authority
Dalewood Reservoir Trail Open For Hiking

St. Thomas, Ontario – July 5, 2019 – With the completion of the Dalewood Bridge construction, Kettle Creek Conservation Authority (KCCA) is reopening the full loop of the Dalewood Reservoir Trail.

"The completion of the Dalewood Bridge means the southwest loop of the Dalewood Reservoir Trail is open," says Marianne Levogiannis, public relations supervisor of KCCA. "The newly completed bridge is a benefit to pedestrians too," notes Levogiannis.

With the old Bailey Bridge hikers and pedestrians wanting to cross Kettle Creek had to share the crossing with traffic. Now there is a full sidewalk for pedestrians and hikers.

Levogiannis is hopeful that hikers will explore the Dalewood Reservoir Trail over the coming months – especially some recent improvements to the trail itself. KCCA has reopened a parking lot to the North of Dalewood Campground. The parking lot provides additional parking and access to a new trail extension and viewing platform. The parking lot is open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and includes access to a privy.

"There's a lot to be excited about," says Levogiannis, noting that there is a new public canoe/boat access along the trail. "If you don't have a canoe or kayak you can rent them from Dalewood Conservation Area."

The Dalewood Reservoir Trail is a 10.2 km natural surface trail. KCCA manage over 25 kilometres of hiking trails. For more information on KCCA's programs and services visit www.kettlecreekconservation.on.ca

For canoe and kayak rentals call the Dalewood Gatehouse 519-631-1009.
