Marden Tract


The Marden Tract is a 50-acre block of land owned by the Grand River Conservation Authority. Located close to Guelph, it’s an easy walk. A linear trail – meaning you come out the way you go in – it wanders through a hardwood bush beside a field. It’s also adjacent to an abandoned rail line, which will one day be a hiking trail from Guelph across country to Millbank. Even this close to the city, you’ll find signs of wildlife. Deer tracks in the winter show that you share the woods with animals.

The trail ends when it reaches a railway right-of-way. This old rail line connected Guelph with Elora and points north. Now it forms part of the Trans Canada Trail. To the south is an operating rail line, part of a spur that goes into Guelph. Please be cautious if you go this far.
