Aug 8 2016 Light traffic. No hustle and bustle. Enjoyed the scenery. Met friendly cyclists and joggers along the way. Looked after extremely well. Nice and level. Bike repair station complete with tools and bike rack/stand at the start of trail. How cool is that! Wheel chair accessible. Distance marked in km. Benches along the way. Great way to connect the rural and urban communities. 2 thumbs way up!
It is a nice trail, very lush, and quite easy to navigate. Very straight forward. It is located just off Wellington Road 39. Travel a bit down the road and you'll come across an opening with the trail signs. Cheers!
Being close to our home, this trail is one we ride regularly. There is a disconnect near West Montrose where you have to take your bike off a rideable trail and push it down a hill, along the grand river through sometimes long grass (sometimes mowed) over rough ground to connect with the road, ride along the roadway and reconnect with the trail further on. If you are counting on an easy ride, you are going to want to bypass this section of the trail unless you're very fit. Towards the Millbank end of the trail there hasn't been much trail maintenance or improvement so it can be challenging - soggy ground that your tires sink into, and areas of encroaching grass that isn't mowed either. Holes are appearing that you need to be vigilant to not run into. Mostly though the trail is a wonderful ride even on road bikes, through Mennonite countryside. Wildflowers and birds abound. Not too many heavily traveled roads to cross. Small towns crop up that offer wonderful breaks for refreshments, lunch, ice-cream, etc.
