  1. I took my first ride on the Railpath this morning and loved it. Great work everyone. Being separate from traffic is one boon, but sparing cyclists from the awful Roncey/Dundas turn is brilliant!

    I look forward to any and all extensions to the path. One suggestion… can you put on the map all the access points to the path?

  2. Graig: Great idea… I just might make an access- point-map for y’all!

  3. The graffiti along the trail has become an eyesore and even some of the signs have been defaced. There have some attempts to tear down /cover up the pictures of nude women. What can we do to turn this path into something that represents the artistic abilities of the residents in the area ?

  4. Graig: Trailhead maps are finally up at Cariboo and Dundas West. I saw them leading a walk of the WTR on Sunday, February 21, 2010.

    Linda: I agree some of the grafitti has been a negative, especially at the Viceroy building. If there is going to be painting along the trail, the work at the Fish House and the Dupont abutments are great examples.
