Did you know that Collingwood has over 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 the scenic Collingwood Downtown.
Created in 1989, the Collingwood and Georgian Trail Networks connect Collingwood from the Bay south to Nottawa, and east and west to Stayner and Meaford.
Aside from providing a great pathway with majestic views, the trails also provide an opportunity to learn about some fantastic moments in Collingwood history. Features on the trails include plaques on the North West Mounted Police departure from the Collingwood harbor, the Keith Family Dairy, The Smart Brothers and the Shipyards among others. Over 30 sites on the trails provide a small glimpse of the town’s history and the people who helped create it.
