Although the Waterfront Trail is a long one encompassing around 900 km of natural and culture and travels through various communities, countrysides, parks and heritage sites from Lake Ontario to the St Lawrence River, but if you’re looking for a shorter trail that’s just as charming in Brockville, why not give Canada’s first railway tunnel the Brockville Waterfront Trail a shot? With beautiful landscapes along the shores of the St. Lawrence River, the historical photo plaques describe early years when railways and industry dominated the waterfront. The 6.1km trail can be accessed for hiking, walking and cycling year-round. There are picnic areas and washrooms along the scenic and urban trail, and even some hidden entrances to stunning off-road trails!
The trail can be accessed from three points
- Henry St. and Water Street
- Blockhouse Island Parkway – Market Street West
- Centeen Park – foot of Park Street at Water Street
