The Collingwood Trails encompasses over 60 kilometres of recreational trails for cyclists, walkers, joggers, skiers, and snowshoers as well as adults and kids commuting to work or school. 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 new Labyrinth, the historic Station Museum, and Collingwood Downtown.

We all know that a little outdoor activity is a great way to improve our health. Collingwood’s extensive Trails network is making it easier for all of us to step out and discover just how good it feels.

The well-marked Trails can get us around town safely and quickly. They also give good reason to pause along the way, take a deep breath, and come back to linger.

As it turns out, what’s good for each of us is good for all of us. By reducing emissions, saving energy and getting back to a more active lifestyle, we help make Collingwood a cleaner, healthier and friendlier place to live. Active Transportation to work and school reduces traffic and pollution and using our Trails promotes the conservation of our natural environments and wildlife habitats.

Winter Trails

Which trails are maintained in the winter months?

  • Recreational trails are not maintained in the winter except the trails within Harbourview Park and the Georgian Trail.  These trails are groomed when there is adequate snow to pack down (not plowed or sanded).
  • The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Association (OFSA) maintains their snowmobile trails which include a portion of the north side of Poplar Sideroad and the Black Ash trail heading north to Canadian Tire and then heading east to Birch Street in Harbourview Park.

Are snowmobiles allowed to travel on trails?

  • The Town allows snowmobiles along the Train Trail (from the OPP station to Poplar Sideroad) and along the Hamilton Drain Trail (from the Train Trail to Saunders Street) for local access to the OFSA trails as per Bylaw 2015-095.
  • Snowmobiles need to follow the Highway Traffic Act when operating on the roadway and should not use pedestrian sidewalks.
