About Chippewa Trail
Fees: Parking is $7.50 per day; free with HCA Membership Pass.
The Chippewa Rail Trail follows an abandoned rail line south from the Chippewa Rail Trail Parking lot to Caledonia. HCA manages 12 kms of the 15 km trail, up until Haldibrook Road. After passing through an industrial area in Stoney Creek, the trail opens up into rolling farm land and natural areas. A point of interest is the old rail bridge that crosses Twenty Mile Creek. The trail is mostly flat and is easily accessible.
From the parking lot on Dartnall Road, users follow a 1.6 km trail which will bring you through Mount Albion Conservation Area to the lights and crosswalk on the corner of Dartnall Road and Stonechurch Road. This section of trail is also part of the East Mountain Loop. The Chippewa Trail begins at the intersection once you cross.
The Chippewa Trail is part of the Niagara section of the Trans Canada Trail and will take you into Caledonia. From there you can connect to the Caledonia – Dunnville Rail Trail.
