More About the Elora Cataract Trailway



Once an abandoned CP rail corridor, the Elora Cataract Trailway was formed through the co operation with Credit Valley Conservation, Grand River Conservation and the Elora Cataract Trailway Association. Since the acquisition of the right-of -way by the two Conservation Authorities in 1993, the goal of creating a greenway through which people can explore their environment in different ways, while protecting natural and cultural heritage values is being attained.

Visitor Information

The Trailway is 3 metres wide with a stone screened surface suitable for walking with strollers, wheelchairs or cycling. The trail is open all year round and can provide four season recreation, such as cross-country skiing, horseback riding, hiking, cycling, or snowmobiling.
