Indian Bay Pond Snowmobile Trail        

Proponent: Kittiwake Snowmobile Association

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent is planning to re-locate a section of an existing snowmobile trail along the former Bonavista North Highway to avoid water crossings and promote safe snowmobiling. The re-located trail will follow 24.3 kilometres of existing road and will require the construction of 3.4 kilometres of new trail. The existing trail will be decommissioned once the re-located trail has been constructed.  Both the existing and proposed trails lie within the Indian Bay Protected Water Supply Area.  Construction is projected to begin during the summer of 2016 and is expected to be completed during one construction season.
