The newest section of the trail south from Bradley St. to the CPR railroad tracks was mapped by 12th Whitby Boy Scouts. The trail is called the Mule Train Trail after an accident near the trail end on November 2, 1916.
A CPR train was proceeding east through Whitby. The train was packed with mules bound for Montreal and from there to serve as pack animals in the First World War. A wrong switch was opened and the train and its cargo jumped the tracks. The train contained 180 mules. Approximately 150 were killed or had to be destroyed because of the injuries they sustained.
This new trail follows Pringle Creek like the northern portions.
Marker posts have been erected at either entrance.
Enjoy your walk.
