About the Trails

Collingwood Trails

There is a trail for you!

The trails are four-season, multi-use paths for walkers, joggers, cyclists, skiers, and snowshoers. Crushed stone, concrete, wooden walkways and dirt-paths join street bicycle routes to help get you around town. Most surfaced trails are flat terrain and generally accessible for the physically challenged. Snowmobiles have town access via specially marked trails. No other motorized vehicles are permitted.

Again, the trails provide access to every major point of interest in town. Drop into the Collingwood Museum and the Georgian Triangle Tourist Association at The Station. Enjoy the lakefront view and the amenities of Sunset Point Park. Wander through the Arboretum and enjoy a moment of contemplation at the Labyrinth. View the Harbour from Millennium Park or the boardwalk on the Hens and Chickens Trail. Check out the downtown stores. Visit the facilities at Central Park. Explore the Nature Trails in the Eleventh Line area. Follow the Heather Pathway, a series of Town trails linked together from Millennium Park to The Hen & Chickens Boardwalk that gratefully acknowledges a very generous anonymous donation toward trail development. And if you are looking to travel further afield, you have direct access to the Georgian Trail to Thornbury and Meaford or the Train Trail to Stayner.

So park your car, put on your hiking shoes, jump on your bike, or get out those snowshoes. There’s a trail for you.

Map boards

In addition, to make it easier for people to navigate the Collingwood Trails, map boards have been installed around town so that everyone can quickly determine where they are and plan a route to where they wish to go. Map boards are located at Sixth Street and Black Ash Trail, Poplar Sideroad and the Train Trail, Marine View Drive and Highway 26, and beside the bicycle Outdoor Repair Station in Sunset Point Park.
