Father Troys Trail: Flatrock to Torbay – May 6
Hikers who wish to access Father Troys Trail in the Town of Flatrock must use the Wade’s Lane entry point. The access point through Wharf Road is temporarily closed by the Town as a result of a mid-December storm that damaged the wharf and boat launch faciliity, and left large stones over the road and across the old shoreline route that hikers were using to access Father Troy’s Trail.
The Town Council has placed barriers across Wharf Road and asks for your cooperation as a safety precaution. The Wade’s Lane access is only 10-15 metres further along the main road and you can drive your vehicle to the end of Wade’s Lane, where a large parking area is available for hikers.
