Map and Trail Information

SJAM Winter Trail Composite Map as of Jan 18, 2018, created by using GPS. The SJAM Winter Trail runs from the Dominion bus stop in the west (that section not fully shown) to the Canadian War Museum in the east. The 3.4km of trail in our neighbourhood is within the Champlain Woods buffering Champlain Park, goes to Tunney’s Pasture, and there is a little trail through the park to our fieldhouse and its washrooms.
