Following are some of the many tasks to be performed: managing traffic at access points, welcoming skiers and other participants, serving beverages and snacks, building snow tracks on roads for skiers, setting up and dismantling of installations at access and activity points. If you can come out for a few hours on January 26th, please email Lyse Huot at [email protected] Thank you in advance!

Guided Trail Walk, in Collaboration with Chelsea Trails

In the context of Chelsea Days, the Municipality of Chelsea invites you to a guided trail walk activity, organized in collaboration with Chelsea Trails. This guided trail walk will take place on June 1st, 2019.

Approximately 5.3 km in length, the walk is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. at McNally Park, in the Chelsea Park neighbourhood. Participants of all ages are welcome. A representative of Chelsea Trails will guide the walkers. This activity could take around one hour and a half to two hours, depending on each person’s pace.

Thank you in advance for your participation, which will enable you to experience the trails that have been built in Ward 2 of our Municipality. Since the trails run along the lines of residential properties, please ensure that you stay within the limits of the paths and keep noise low as you pass close by to homes and decks. (more…)

AGM highlights more trails, more active transport

AGM highlights more trails, more active transport

On April 15, Chelsea Trails kicked off their spring trail building season at the AGM with a call for more volunteers to help carry out the ambitious plans for this year’s trails. With 5 trail building projects in the works in the north of the village, centre village and Musie ponds, more helping hands are needed.  To mark our first volunteer win of the season, we are delighted to welcome Tifenn Vialatte and Nic Hinsperger to the board.

The active living and transport file is another priority. SCT is fundraising for the environmental studies move forward with the Municipality to establish a north-south active transportation corridor ( or multi-use trail) through Chelsea Creek safely linking the Centre Village with Gatineau and Ottawa.
