Trail Overview

This is an old rail trail starting in the heart of Hamilton, Ontario, and pushing south towards the rural town of Caledonia, Ontario. This trail is narrow and smooth, covered in perfectly graded gravel from years of use and recreation. There are many fascinating and beautiful sights to see along this path, from vast farm fields filled with corn and other produce to river crossings and ponds to stop and take a breathtaking rest. This trail is also easy on your body and what it lacks in difficulty, it makes up for in length and scenery. It's perfect for smaller recreational vehicles such as SxS, quads, and dirt bikes.
