Use Caution When Using Weston's Trails


Due to the recent storms, many trees have fallen on Weston’s 90+ miles of trails. Our trails manager will be working extra time clearing downed trees from trails, but it will take a few weeks to get to them all. In the meantime, use extra care on trails and stay safe. 

Downed trees on trails can be dangerous, so approach them with caution. Assess the situation, and if necessary, turn around and find another route. Look up for broken and hanging limbs and avoid going under them. Use extreme caution if climbing over downed branches or trunks; they may shift position and cause injury. Use common sense and make the choice that keeps you safe.

Downed trees are posing particularly hazardous trail conditions at Weston Reservoir. We highly discourage people from using Weston Reservoir’s trails until crews can make the trails safe again, likely next week. 

When trail crews are working, give them space. Do not approach when chainsaws are running. Respect caution tape boundaries and temporary trail closures.


If you find a tree blocking a trail, please report it to If possible, include a photo of the tree and a description of the tree’s location (e.g. name of the conservation area, closest trail intersection, nearest house number, etc). Even better - access Weston’s trail map on your mobile device using the MapsOnline Trails App ( Click “zoom” at the bottom of the screen to show your location, and send us a screenshot of the location along with your email.
