Niagara River Recreation Trail
Recreation Trail Development
Constructed in 1986, the Niagara River Recreation Trail is a 53-kilometre paved path for non-motorized traffic along the Canadian side of the Niagara River, stretching from Fort Erie to Niagara-on-the-Lake.
About the Trail
The recreation trail is a popular destination for walking, jogging and cycling, providing stunning views of the Niagara River and the spectacular lands and features that make up the Niagara River Corridor. The recreation trail also connects to larger trail systems including the Trans Canada Trail, the Waterfront Trail, the Greater Niagara Circle Route and the Greenbelt Route and the Empire State Trail.
The recreation trail is in need of repair to keep up with the growing demand and use by local residents and tourists alike. In addition to paving work, there are numerous foot bridges that require repair. Through the Niagara Parks Foundation, all 53 kilometres of the Niagara River Recreation Trail will be completely restored and preserved so that it can be enjoyed for generations to come.
