Is this trail good for a road bike, or mountain gravel bike?

I absolutely love this trail, I have gone end to end many times and it is a fantastic walk.

It’s not a particularly interesting trail. Lots of poison ivy.

-10C with a strong wind out of the west made it pretty hard going with drifting snow across the trail, particularly in those sections of trail that were exposed to the open fields. Never the less it was an enjoyable outing. I will be sure to return in better weather to complete the full out and back.

Nice trail that meanders along an out of service rail line. I have heard that bears have been seen in the area of the Fort so might be an idea to wear bells or have spray.

good straight trail for any need. except downhill riding, its a little to flat for that.

Really good trail. Peaceful in winter. I am definitely going to return to either cross country ski or cycle in the spring/fall.

Started at Limehouse went to Acton.
Took 3hr 45mins

Takes you through fenced in quary, Trail got good at 4th side road.

Great trail.

This was a great ride and a wonderful trail. Also some spots along it said it was equestrian, which I suggested an edit with. This is the third trail i've tried in the area and now my favorite.

Great place for families, couples or time on your own. You can hike, bike, run and swim at the beach.
There are benches to stop at and have a bite to eat, or read your favourite book or contemplate life.
I highly recommend this trail

Really great rustic section between 5th line and Dublin line good and challenging

great trail to take an intermission from the Chedoke stairs.

NoT aN OfF rOaD tRaiL!!
Don't be deceived by trail title or some people's comments. You cannot drive your Jeep, 4x4 or your SUV on this trail...it is by permit only if you have an A.T.V. Fudthermore this is a TRAIL and is more like a walking path..a pretty lame ride..no exciting adventure here..oh sorry unless your one of those grandma atv riders who doesn't actually know how to offroad or go through mud, jumps etc..YoU gO giRlS!!

We are long distance backpackers . Although this trail is long enough the people looked at us like we aliens from the caucus mountains invading . One guy said people like you can't walk here all dressed up like that . I said what people dressed like what ? He said like you . I said you can't discriminate against people and hassle them because of the way they dress . He said you can't dress like that because you're not from around here . Well he was right about that and I will never go back either . So watch out for the bums on this trail , they don't like out of towners . Good Luck !! :(

Summer 2017: I walked from Guelph to Goderich and back, a little bit at a time. Twenty trips, 255km total. This last part, the Goderich Auburn Rail Trail, is very good, with a spectacular high level railway bridge near the end, overlooking the Maitland River where it meets Lake Huron.

Too many road treks

The trail is not accessible from Norwich. Tried various points and farmers have blocked off trail. We picked the trail up in Springford and walked to Tillsonburg.
This trail should not be promoted as a 17.5 km trail because of limited access.
I will be addressing this concern with Oxford County and municipal councils.
My advise is for others to bring this concern forward. For those planning to do this 17.5 km trek according to the map, it cannot be done at this time. How disappointing.

The first several kms from guelph are not great

After careful google study looking at signs and contact with the municipalities involved with this trail it is CLOSED to pedestrians !! It has signage indicating no walking or hiking is allowed , it is NOT a multi use trail . Apparently the local land owners have talked the county into preventing foot traffic so they can have their own private trail . After talking with the county they are upholding this blockage with signage . If caught on this trail on foot you will be charged and the county will uphold these charges . So our tax dollars bought this trail so a few adjoining owners could have a private trail . WOW !! So ALL HIKERS need to stay away from this trail !!

They have blocks from Jeeps up at the shelborne end of things. Where about can you get a Jeep on the trail

Walked from Flos 7 to Phelpston. Trail is level and hard packed gravel, good for hiking and cycling. Lots of bugs. Church in Phelpston (St Patrick) is open in 2017 in the summer on the weekends, a lovely church. Pleasant trail with rural scenery.

I parked on Scenic drive and took the Chedoke stairs down and connected to the trail. Beautiful trail and I sure didn't feel like is was within the city limits.

Sweet trail

Great trail!

There are no benches for a break and the only markers you have are beside each road you cross.
