Alfred Hales Trail


This section of trail runs parallel to the Speed River in downtown Guelph between Macdonell Street and Eramosa Road. It forms part of the Royal Recreational Trail, which will eventually wind 20 kilometres (12 miles) through parkland and open space right through the centre of the City. Some sections of the trail are planned but not yet developed. With downtown Guelph only a stone’s throw away, the Alfred Hales section is ideal for a walk by the river past the back o fthe River Run Centre. After you leave the trail, you can try out a coffee bar or pub as the city’s bars and restaurants are smoke-free!

Parking on the street or the lots in downtown area, or try the parks along the river. “Alfred Hales represented Guelph as a Member of Parliament for 17 years and was a director of the Grand River Foundation, the charitable organization that supports the Grand River Conservation Authority. The trail and an overlook on the river behind the River Run Centre are a tribute to this memory.”
