Mill Run Trail


This woodland trail runs along the Speed River from the Sheffield Street trailhead under Highway 401 to Riverside Park, connecting Hespeler to Preston.



It follows the 1896 Galt, Preston, Hespeler Electric Railway Line passing through Chilligo Conservation area and the former Idylwild Park. The trail surface is mainly stone dust with stretches of boardwalks offering a footbridge crossing and river vistas. The area is alive with deer, beaver, ducks, geese, heron and numerous songbirds.

At Russ Street, follow the trail over a 200-foot pedestrian bridge into Riverside Park (at 250 acres it is Cambridge's largest park with an interpretive boardwalk, playing fields, outdoor water park, picnic areas and washrooms). Continue through the park to the King Street Bridge and cross to Chopin Drive to connect with Linear Trail.
