The Great Trail is the world's longest network of recreational multi-use trails.
There are approximately 20 kilometres of
The Great Trail (formerly known as the Trans Canada 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:
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.
