There is no such thing as a road less travelled here, because as much as we love our downtown streets and neighbourhood crescents, it’s our unpaved trails that connect us – to nature, to our communities and to a lifestyle that makes time for the things that matter. In a place as beautiful as this, you’ve got to get out and explore. It’s time never wasted.

The solitude seekers, cyclists and hikers, stroller, four-legged friends and nature lovers alike find their footing on more than 47kms of trails of the Elora Cataract Trailway. These protected trails are cultivated by dedicated volunteers who are doing their apart to ensure that the beauty that comes naturally to our place, remains integral to our space.

It’s hard to believe that in less than 5 minutes from any main street or neighbourhood, you can be totally immersed in nothing but nature right in our backyard, but feel as far away as your mind will wander.

The journey is as important as the destination, so pick your view. From expansive farm land, to horses grazing in a field, overlooking the winding Grand River from the pathways or bridges, to the canopy of a forest or the shores of Belwood Lake, there is a view waiting for you. And it’s free.

Take the paths most travelled. It’s worth it.

Check back here at a later date. We’ll be updating this post over time.
