Trails

The Collingwood Trails encompass more that 60 kilometres of recreational trails for cyclists, walkers, joggers, skiers, and snowshoers. There’s a trail leading to every major point of interest in the Town including the beaches of Sunset Point, the scenic lookout at Millennium Park, the tranquil gardens of the Arboretum, the historic Station Museum, and Collingwood Downtown.

Collingwood Trails 25th Anniversary!

In 2014, Collingwood Trails is celebrating 25 years of trails in town and is doing so with a new logo, an upated trail map, a photo contest, Art in the Street banners, new interpretive signs, and more! Join in the celebration as these activities unfold. Find out more about some of these exciting projects below.

New Collingwood Trails Logo

The new Collingwood Trails logo is composed of a stylized version of the name Trails combined with the Town name and three very distinctive leaves, each in a unique colour. The leaf colours of green, blue and brown add an element of nature and attraction. The linear lines in the leaves help to represent the connecting trail system and the colours of the leaves represent the area attractions of green spaces, water (blue), and the mountain in brown. The layout of the leaves also represent the directional choices of the trail system. The leaves can represent outdoors, nature, trees and water to symbolize Collingwood’s closeness to all seasons of natural beauty.

In recognition of the 25th anniversary of trails in Collingwood, the Collingwood Trails Committee is organizing several activities to celebrate including the planting of 25 native Canadian Maples along the south section of the Deer Trail adjacent to the Eleventh Line Road. 
 
Thank you to all the trail supporters who sponsored a tree! On Wednesday June 4, 2014 Trail Committee Members and Sponsors participated in the planting of a tree to help celebrate the anniversary and to help create a future “crimson forest” for all to enjoy.
 

This project is partially subsidized by Maple Leaves Forever, a charitable foundation dedicated to restoring the Native Maple to the Canadian landscape. Read more at www.mapleleavesforever.com.
