The wooden bridge over the East Humber River, at Humber Trails Conservation Area, west of Mill Road, in southern King Township, was partially washed out during the late-winter/early-spring of 2016. Visitors are warned not to use the hazardous, unsafe bridge to cross the river. Signs have been posted on site by the Toronto Region Conservation Authority absolving itself of any responsibility for mishaps involving the damaged bridge by members of the public. Sadly, this is the best public access to the historic 'Humber' in King Township.
The photo (left) show at trail counter that records traffic At Humber Trails with the intention of better trail planning and property management decisions. Surely, Humber Trails is a essential component of TRCA's raison d'etre, but it seems to have been completely forgotten. Good intentions do not necessarily make good trails.
