For over two decades, the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail has assisted communities around the shores of the Lake Ontario and the St. Lawrence River revitalize their waterfronts and connect them with a trail now enjoyed by bikers, hikers, and joggers of all ages. After seven expansions, the Trail is 2100 km along 3 Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence River. In Prince Township, west of Sault Ste. Marie, it touches Lake Superior and connects to the Lake Superior Water Trail.  The result is waterfronts that are regenerated... lakeshore communities are renewed... and lives made healthier. Learn more about the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail's history, read here and more about our partnership and projects.

The Waterfront Regeneration Trust is the charity leading the work to protect, connect and celebrate the world's largest group of freshwater through the creation of the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail.  We work with waterfront communities, First Nations, senior government, agencies and many other dedicated organizations who share the vision for a clean, green, connected, diverse, useable, affordable, open, attractive, and accessible waterfront.
