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.

From August 11-15, the daily distance will be 40-60 km camp to camp per day, creating more freedom to do things off the bike. Want to ride more?

Rouge National Urban Park—
WRT’s ongoing involvement in the restoration and protection of the Rouge Valley in partnership with Parks Canada
The Waterfront Regeneration Trust manages a fund dedicated to the restoration and protection of the Rouge Valley. During the past 16 years we have funded hundreds of excellent environmental initiatives through the Rouge Alliance's Natural Heritage Restoration Program. The Federal government's decision to establish the Rouge National Urban Park under Parks Canada means that the Rouge Alliance has come to end having successfully secured a future for a protected Rouge Valley. The last projects under the Alliance's Natural Heritage Restoration program conclude in 2013, as directed by TRCA, which is acting as interim manager of Rouge Park until Parks Canada assumes full control. We thank and congratulate the many groups and the Alliance for their work and dedication.
After a wide consultation process with Canadians to learn their thoughts on the concept for the Rouge National Urban Park, Parks Canada is developing a strategic management plan for the Park. The plan will outline the integrated delivery of Parks Canada's mandate for protection, education and visitor experience.
The Waterfront Regeneration Trust will continue its investment in the protection and restoration of the Rouge Valley as a partner of Parks Canada within the context of the strategic management plan.
