Welcome to the Waterfront Trail

Stretching over 1400km along the Canadian shores of Lake Ontario, Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair and the Niagara, Detroit and St. Lawrence Rivers, the Waterfront Trail connects 68 communities and over 405 parks and natural areas including wetlands, forests and beaches. Created to regenerate, celebrate and reconnect people to our Great Lake waterfronts, the Trail has become a well-loved and used recreation, fitness and green transportation amenity and a world-renowned tourism attraction.

The fully signed Trail is a combination of paths (21%), neighbourhood streets (21%), and rural roads (58%). Many urban centers have dedicated paths that are a central features of their waterfronts. Major trails including the Niagara River Path and the St. Lawrence bikeway are part of the Waterfront Trail network. It is largely paved and welcomes all types of non-motorized recreation including runners, cyclists, walkers, wheelchairs, strollers and rollerbladers.

Established in 1988, the Waterfront Regeneration Trust is the non-profit organization leading the movement to create a Waterfront Trail for the Canadian Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River. We do this in partnership with 68 community partners, supporting corporations, foundations and partner organizations.

The Trail can be enjoyed for a quick stroll or as part of a multi-day long distance adventure. Be sure to check out the following resources for more ideas on how to enjoy the trail:
