I went on the trail from Floradale Rd towards Elmira. I think it is more suited for biking than walking.

Beautiful trail but the trail head is not where the app says it is. Start point is on Silvercreek Parkway. The marked start is on private property. Watch for road apples, not hard to tell people ride horses on this trail too.

Great for a walk, really cool how far you can see on the trail b/c its so straight. Not too busy for long sections. If you are coming from KW, I recommend parking on W. montrose on middlebrook Rd. Beautiful spots with benches near towns that are perfect for a picnic. Surprising amounts of shade and variation (forested to fields)

We started at Millbank and did the first 6km and back. Recently groomed, a bit dusty but well taken care of since last time I was there. Not much shade, so a hat was a definite must. Some lovely properties, and rural landscape to be enjoyed.

Road biking

June 23 2019 Weekday ride Distance: From Guelph to Wallenstein and back: 35km x2 Trail condition: 8.5/10 Bike: Road bike with slick tires Google maps and it told me exactly where to find "West Montrose Covered Bridge" to cross the Grand river. The quaint bridge is the highlight of the trail. Overall an easy flat ride through the beautiful pastoral fields and Mennonite farms. It offers plenty of shade with about 60% of the trial under foliage. There are gated entrances every couple of KM so it's easy to access the trail from dozens of roads. The fine gravel is was hard packed and smooth. There was some washboarding on the double tracks from tractors. With little rain in the previous 2 days the trail was dry. Humidity was low so mosquitoes was no problems.

I like this trail. Good for an evening ride. My only critique is that some of the trail head gates are too close together and my handle bars don’t easily go through. Scenic and a bit of road riding to bypass the river and head to the covered bridge.

Road biking

A very accessible local trail with a reasonable variety of scenery and surfaces to keep you engaged. I often cycle on the trail, including it in a variety of different loops and routes that utilize various gravel roads. One can out-and-back from the Silvercreek trailhead to the Kissing bridge in about 25km, perfect for a quick outing, or plan to spend the day and cover the entire trail to Goderich in 6-7 hours. The trail passes through and connects to several Mennonite communities that offer great hospitality and treats (except on Sundays). Note that the trail conditions are in need of improvement between Milverton and Blyth and one will need to use a few side roads to detour the impassable sections.

Walking

Started at the beginning in GUELPH. Went 6 Km one way to 8th line and then back. A lovely easy walk as it’s an old decommissioned Rail line so is very flat. Not very busy at all, at least when we were on it. We’ve decided to walk this entire trail over several visits. We’ll just park where we finished last time, and hike a new section, then do again. We should have it done in 5 or 6 fairly easy walks. Do wear big repellant though. Mosquitos could carry you off. ......update on Aug 16....we’ve now also hiked from the other end, starting in Milbank and gone as far as Linwood (Approx 20Km round trip). Much more open at this end with much of the trail cutting through various farmers fields. Very pleasant and lovely views of rolling hills. More to come..

Good ride with lots of photo oportunities. Parts of the trail are open fields--check wind strenghth and direction before heading out.
