KIPP Trail opens in Kincardine

The City of Kincardine and the Kincardine Trail Association have officially opened the Kincardine to Inver Huron Provincial Park (KIPP) trail.

Brad Kirkconnell, president of the Kincardine Trail Association, said the committee had been working on the project for a decade and was delighted to see it finally come to fruition.

“There’s been a lot of work on this, a lot of setbacks, a lot of delays, but that’s all over now. It’s about watching people go out and enjoy this and then start our next project. We’re doing this for the benefit of the community, which is That’s what it’s all about,” Kirkconnell said.

KirkConnell says they try to avoid cutting down trees when creating these trails.

“We try not to cut down trees unless absolutely necessary, but we try to avoid that. We’ve been planting trees for the last few years as well, so I think we’re actually on the plus side,” he said.

He said their next project involved a 5km cycle path within the city of Kincardine.

“It has four kilometers to work. We only need to fix one kilometer and it will take some work because there is slope work involved. We are working on a plan with the municipality and hopefully next year we can start working on it,” he added. .

The KIPP trail is approximately 12 kilometers long and is the first trail in the city to connect all three districts.
