Forest Heights trail corridor

This trail loop forms a triangular shape along to the north of Highway 8 in the Forest Heights Community. The trails follow hydro corridors and are largely unpaved in nature. The trails are accessible by cyclists and pedestrians.


Henry Strum Trail

The trail starts at the Iron Horse Trail near West Avenue, and heads west alongside the Henry Sturm creek, from which it takes its name. The trail is partially paved and some sections are winter maintained. The trail is a Multi Use Trail and accessible to cyclists and pedestrians.


Sandrock Trail

The Sandrock Trail starts at Highland Road West, near the intersection with Fischer Hallman and follows the Detweiler Creek. The trail is partially paved and some sections are winter maintained. The trail is a Multi Use Trail and accessible to cyclists and pedestrians.


Trail etiquette

  • keep the right side of the trail as you move along it
  • keep dogs on leash and remember to pick up after them
  • if you are moving up behind people in front (for example, runners and cyclists) please make people aware of your approach – use a bell, or provide a verbal indication (‘on your left’)
  • if walking in a group, be aware of others using the trail and give them space to pass
  • do not use motorized vehicles on the trail, and respect residents that live along the trail by proceeding quietly – particularly in the early morning or evening
