started in Elmira and headed west. Well maintained trail-flat and easy to ride on. Goes through Mennonite country. Very interesting ride.

My girlfriend and I biked this trail from Guelph to goderich this summer. It's great because it used to be an old rail line, so it's flat the entire way. Several little sections along the way have been shut down or aren't looked after though, so you have to take the road at points. It took us 3 nights and we camped along the way. The kissing bridge trail section only took us a day.

This is a beautiful trail and perfect for longer distance backpacking . Yes there are a few deep holes to watch out for and a couple detours . Surprisingly the oddest occurrence was Mennonite bike traffic . Twice they rode their bikes right into us ?? These were different people at different times on different sections of trail with no apology . I'm still trying to figure these encounters out so watch out for bike traffic . Lots of apple trees full of fruit on some sections .This trail continues on to Goderich as the G 2 G trail . We have trekked some sections west of Milverton but they are pretty rough and full of ticks so dress accordingly . K

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.
