A Gateway to Nature

Connect with nature on the 47-kilometre trail that travels from the Town of Fergus to the Village of Cataract. Thirteen kilometres weave through CVC lands from Hillsburgh to Cataract.

Formerly a CP rail corridor, the trail is now a gateway to nature. With a three-metre-wide stone-screened surface, it’s perfect for cyclists, strollers and wheelchairs.

This trailway was formed through a partnership between CVC, Grand River Conservation Authority and the Elora Cataract Trailway Association.
