Hike with Jim Hoare

The Guelph Hiking Trail Club builds and maintains trails from Cambridge to Limehouse, and from Guelph to West Montrose.

We are a volunteer organization begun in 1970 and incorporated in 1974. We organize hikes, publish newsletters, and produce a Handbook of maps of our trails. We welcome visitors on our hikes and on our trails.

We hope to meet you on the trails!

The City of Guelph has completed assessment of the tree plantations in the Arkell Springs Grounds. Tree removal activities have begun, and selected portions of the trail may be temporarily closed, to ensure the safety of workers and trail users during this period. Selected trails will be closed to ensure the safety of workers and trail users during this period. Trail closures will be posted and we ask for your patience and cooperation in staying out of those areas. Updated information will be provided as we receive it from the City. Please watch for and obey any signs posted by the City or GHTC.

Saturday, September 26th, 9am. Annual Hanlon Creek Workday.

This is not a GHTC event, but we hope to support the efforts to build the boardwalk system in the Hanlon Creek Conservation Area. Come out and assist with the last major building phase. The group will be building two substantial boardwalks totalling more than 80 metres, as well as taking on a number of smaller projects throughout the complex. The meeting point is south of the Conservation area, at the park entrance off Southgate, across the street from Performance Dance Academy. There is a bus stop there.
