When completed, this 15-kilometre abandoned rail corridor linking Hamilton with Caledonia will become part of the Niagara branch of the Trans Canada Trail. It will also be connected to the Caledonia-to-Dunnville rail trail.
Approximately 12 kilometres have been completed and work is proceeding as funding permits. An easement agreement has been signed with Georgia Pacific that will allow the Chippawa Trail to proceed on the outskirts of their land. The Conservation Foundation is spearheading efforts to fund the rail corridor conversion. Individuals and groups may assist in the project by “purchasing” one-metre sections of trail for $30.
