According to an environmental assessment bulletin released by the province this afternoon a group is proposing to construct a 10-kilometre ATV trail in the  Clarenville area.

Announced by Environment and Conservation Minister Joan  Shea, the project is being proposed by the Sleigh Pond Cabin Owner’s Association.

 The bulletin says the association proposes to modify and construct the trail using two existing approved ATV trails with additional routing through established seasonal/snowmobile trails.

“The purpose for the ATV trail is to access the Sleigh Pond cabin owners’ remote cabins and traditional hunting, fishing and trapping areas,” it says.

The trail will begin at an existing ATV access point about four kilometres west on the White Hills woods road near Clarenville. The trail will continue to the Sleigh Pond area.

The project was registered Friday. The deadline for public comments is April 28 and the minister’s decision is due by May 5.
