TRAILSThe Guelph Hiking Trail Club has built and maintains 4 trails:
- Radial Line Trail--33 km from Guelph to the Bruce Trail at Limehouse, generally along an abandoned rail bed through the valley of the Eramosa River and its tributary, the Blue Springs Creek
- Speed River Trail--17 km from Guelph to Cambridge along the Speed River
- Kissing Bridge Trail--we maintain the 15 km section from Guelph to West Montrose along an abandoned CPR rail bed. (Other partners maintain the remainder of this trail to Millbank. There are plans to continue the trail along the rail bed all the way to Goderich.)
- Starkey Trail--a 4 km loop trail southeast of Guelph that is jointly maintained with the Grand River Conservation Authority
TRAIL MAPS Coloured trail maps are published in our Guelph Hiking Trail Club Handbook.
The Handbook begins with a fold-out page giving an overview of the entire trail system (Radial Line Trail, Speed River Trail and Kissing Bridge Trail) and showing each trail's division into its numbered sections. The remainder of the Handbook describes each section, accompanied by a detailed colour map of that trail and the parking locations. Information on our trail history, hiking safety, and GPS reference points is also included. An example of a map in our Handbook:
