Trails

We are proud to showcase over 40 trails in our trail guide "Wellington Walks". Wellington County is home to a wide range of trails in rural, urban and natural areas. Many of our trails are operated by volunteer trail organizations and individuals in our communities. We thank them for their vision and commitment to making trails available in Wellington County. You can download the trail guide here.

The County owns and operates three trails at Wellington Place between Fergus and Elora (Trestle Bridge, Aboyne and Museum trails) and also helps operate the Kissing Bridge Trailway sections in Guelph/Eramosa and Mapleton.

The Kissing Bridge Trailway is part of the Trans Canada Trail. It is operated through a partnership between the County, the Region of Waterloo and groups who maintain sections of the trail. To raise funds for two major bridges needed to complete the trail, an annual "Spring on the Trail" event is held on the second Saturday of May. You can find out more about participating, volunteering or contributing to this event at http://www.springonthetrail.ca/. There is also a website for the trailway which can be found at http://www.kissingbridgetrailway.ca/.
