This time it really is closed

Lower Don Trail closed until May 2007

There have several warning signs about the trail closing since January but this new fence took many trail users by surprise, especially the fast cyclists who train on the path. I watched several zip under the Queen St. bridge, go by the stairs and then see the fence. They had to hit their brakes hard to avoid crashing. They then stood puzzled by the fence and the signs and then got off their bikes and climbed the stairs up to Queen St.

Of course, those of us who actually heeded the warning signs know enough to stop just north of Queen St. and duck through a hole in the fence. This allows you to avoid the stairs and continue along Bayview to Queen and River.
