There’s a new tool for anyone planning to hike the trails at Scanlon Creek Conservation Area.
The 282 hectare park just north of Bradford is criss-crossed by trails, from the 1.5 km Sugar Maple Loop, to the 3 km Kingfisher Trail that circles the lowlands, travelling through dense forest.
The free Avenza app not only provides an image of the trail system, it also shows the user’s location as a blue dot – providing the hiker’s place on the trail, distance to other trails, and rate of travel.
