Great Lakes, Great Rivers, Great Trail
The Waterfront Trail has been an instrumental part of the Great Lakes regeneration. Along it you will find a 1400 km celebration
of nature and culture - where peaceful countryside, small
towns and big cities are linked to bring our Great Lakes to
this province's residents and visitors, alike. Enjoy it for
a day. Or make it a summer-long adventure. The Waterfront
Trail will let you discover the Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and St. Lawrence River waterfront...and
what it can mean to you.
Congratulations to the St. Lawrence Parks Commission, the Province of Ontario and the Government of Canada. They announced an investment of close to $1 million to make much needed improvements to the Thousand Island Bikeway, which has been part of the Waterfront Trail since 2005. The Waterfront Regeneration Trust has been one of several voices urging for senior government investment over the years.
In 2013 the Waterfront Trail will expand westwards along Lake Erie, adding a second Great Lake and 27 new waterfront communities along a signed, mostly on-road route. Click here to find out more. The route will be launched with a seven-day fully supported recreational bike tour. Registration is filling fast, so sign up soon for the Great Waterfront Trail Adventure.
On June 14-15, 2013 runners will have an opportunity to enjoy a premier overnight running relay event on the Waterfront Trail--RAGNAR. Ragnar is coming to Canada for the first time this year. So pull a team together and prepare to run a fantastic relay from Cobourg to Niagara. As an added benefit, you'll be helping the Waterfront Regeneration Trust continue its work to make the Trail even better. Thank you to the many volunteers who are helping us welcome this new event to the Trail
