A trail with amazing potential, BUT, the cities of Kitchener and Waterloo have failed to make it a priority. The trail itself is very scenic, however is is not connected. There are at least a dozen short sections along the Grand river. Hopefully one day it will be just one.

Nice trail. Lots of rolling ups and downs that make it a little more interesting. I couldn't find the trail head as it's marked on the map (not sure where you're supposed to park), but there is a trail head on Riverbend drive labeled "Economical Insurance Trailway." I hiked from that trailhead to Bingemans and back. Took about 90 minutes total. Best animal sighting was a garter snake on the pathway.
