The Great Trail    

The Great Trail is the world's longest network of recreational multi-use trails.

The Trans Canada Trail has been rebranded as The Great Trail. There are approximately 20 kilometres of The Great Trail through Barrie, connecting in the south at Essa Township and to Springwater Township in the north.

The Great Trail Pavilion is located on Barrie’s waterfront at the Tiffin Boat Launch featuring donor names and logos. The Great Trail passes through many of Barrie’s parks including Sunnidale Park, Queens Park, Meridian Square, Centennial Park, Southshore Park, Allandale Station Park, the Whiskey Creek Walk, Huronia North Park and Lennox Park. 

The trail is complete in the old Barrie lands and is temporarily routed along roadways in the undeveloped southern portions of Barrie. The route will return to parkland in pace with development as the City receives new parkland and environmental land dedications.

The trail also features interpretive signs honouring Indigenous people. The City, in conjunction with the Ministry of Indigenous Affairs, placed three trail markers along the City’s portion of the Trail to honour the history, culture and share the story of local Indigenous communities.
