The Collingwood Trails encompass more that 60 kilometres of recreational trails for cyclists, walkers, joggers, skiers, and snowshoers. There’s a trail leading to every major point of interest in the Town including the beaches of Sunset Point, the scenic lookout at Millennium Park, the tranquil gardens of the Arboretum, the historic Station Museum, and Collingwood Downtown.
George Christie Nature Trails
The former Eleventh Line nature trail area has now been renamed to the George Christie Nature Trails in recognition of George's passion for the CollingwoodTrails and his many years of dedication to their development. Check out the entire area. It is beautiful wilderness retreat within the town limits and an outstanding location for a peaceful nature stroll or some snowshoeing in the winth months.
The Collingwood Trails are growing
Work is now underway to remove the old railway tracks within the town boundaries. Once this work is completed, construction will begin to extend the Siding Trail east from Raglan Street plus complete the Train Trail north of Poplar Sideroad to finally complete the direct link between Collingwood and Stayner. Watch for these lengthy additions to the Collingwood Trails.
Cycling in the Collingwood area
Collingwood Trails and Cycle Simcoe have been working closely together this year to promote cycling in the South Georgian Bay area and are happy to announce the installation of a bicycle Outdoor Repair Station in Sunset Point Park near the "Chipper" canteen. The station fits any bicycle type and comes equipped with all the tools required for minor tweaks to a bike including a pump with a pressure gauge. Tune up your bicycle and enjoy your ride.
The Fit-Trail is coming
A fitness trail consists of a path or course equipped with obstacles or stations distributed along its length for exercising the human body to promote good health. Once complete the trail will include 10 fitness stations and be over a kilometre in length. The stations will be built out of wood and metal, each designed to target a different type of exercise. It will be open to all and will work for all fitness levels. The proposed trail is planned to start and finish in Central Park and will be installed in Spring 2016. More information will follow as the construction date approaches.
