Great easy walk. River is cross able in nice weather....we just removed our boots. FYI if you want to grab a beer at Cowbell it’s about 27 km from the start.

Smooth gravel trail. Easy for bikes, walking or strollers. We did a 4km section but you can go on for 126 Kms according to the signs

Beautiful trail. Did Goderich to Blyth, and had planned to do the return trip as well, but that detour!! Is there a plan to do at least a foot bridge at Auburn? Detour was pretty but very challenging, lots of steep hills with loose gravel.

We had a great bike ride! Beautiful tree archways over a lot of the trail. Most of trail was hard-packed stone dust and easy riding. A couple of spots where we had steep rocky climbs(up and down). Also, detour is a challenging 10km route with lots of hills. Would appreciate more signage. Especially at the detour (both ends) and where trail crosses highways and you have to search for the connecting end. Also where towns/villages are - directional arrows would be nice. But aver all had a most wonderful ride

HikingBridge outGreat!

Very easy to walk, entirely flat gravel path basically the whole way through. Beautiful farmland views! WARNING: there is no bridge to cross the river, we just trudged through and had wet feet for the rest of the hike.

Trail was great until we hit the river about half way between Goderich and Blyth. The bridge is out! You could detour using local roads and that would add about 7km in each direction.

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.

This was my go to trail for running as it was an old train track so it was high and dry. Nice and straight some road crossings but they were side streets and the road crossing at hwy 21 was an overpass so no problems there.

I have some corrections to make on my review which I posted earlier. The "former railroad bridge" is the Menesetung bridge, and the "junction" on the north end is where three trails meet. The Menesetung Trail is the one that runs west, to the "Heritage Oak". I stated that it is "300 years old". The interpretive sign near the oak states that it began growing circa 1780 - which makes the oak closer to 200 years old. The other trail is the Old Menesetung trail. A detailed map for all the trails is on a sign just west of the trail junction (north end of bridge) Both the Menesetung trail and the Old Menesetung trail are very good trails that I can highly recommend. Be warned, some sections of the Old Menesetung trail are very hilly and fairly difficult.

First to Review

This trail follows the rail bed of the abandoned Goderich - Guelph line. As such, it is wide, firm, mostly smooth, and dry. The trail passes through a wide range of natural environments, including mature deciduous forest and wetlands. In some sections, the raised rail bed offers a high viewpoint for nature observation. It's ideal for cycling, especially near the west end, which has an improved surface. The westernmost portion (nearest the town of Goderich) is the most interesting, The trail crosses the Maitland river on the former railroad bridge, which has been converted pedestrian use and has a wide, safe wooden board surface. This high bridge offers impressive views of the Maitland river and valley. The north end of the bridge is at the junction of a trail which follows the river valley west, through a variety of successional forest and woodland, and past a 300-year-old heritage oak tree. It terminates near a private marina, at a road which leads to a trailer park.
