Welcome!

 

The Big Ben Memorial Trail Initiative was a ‘Works-in-Progress’ venture established by volunteers in 2005 to construct a new wilderness trail to accommodate horses in Lanark County’s Lavant Forest.

Lanark County approved the project ‘in-principle’, August 2011.

• • • • • • • • • •

The project moved forward considerably since 2011 with the construction of a new parking facility in 2012, followed by extensive scouting for a trailhead routing to connect with the Bottle Lake Road that accesses two scenic destinations and views along with a Point of  Interest.

A proposed trailhead routing has been located. Preliminary work on the trailhead routing was conducted and completed July 2014.

Ongoing work on the project is pending.

It is with regret the Initiative is no longer involved with the project because of circumstances beyond its control.
