Scenic Ponds and Sharpes Creek
G.A.R.T. is a pastoral route through Colborne Township. It passes two scenic ponds, crosses over Sharpe’s Creek and ends at the intersection of the Maitland Trail. The former rail line does extend east beyond the intersection of the Maitland Trail; however, the original railway bridge near Auburn is out – only the bridge abutments remain.
Snowmobiling is allowed on east 9km; no motorized vehicles otherwise allowed. Horseback riding is permitted along the trail. The Maitland Trail Association or North Huron Trail Grooming Inc. are the trail contacts.
