Saugeen Rail Trail


The Saugeen Rail Trail connects Southampton, Saugeen Township and Port Elgin along the abandoned CN rail line. A popular trip is to travel the entire trail by bike from Port Elgin to Southampton and loop back along the scenic North Shore Road where beautiful views of Lake Huron can be experienced.

Access: The trailhead is at River Street in Port Elgin, a few blocks north of the town and east of Hwy 21. There are several access points -some with parking some without.  See the access points page for details.

The trail is maintained through a combination of volunteer labour, community funding and membership in the Saugeen Rail Trail Association.

As of 2002, the trail has been extended southward with the completion of the Mill Creek Loop south of Louis Street. Extensive plans are in place to continue south to MacGregor Point Provincial Park. Information provided by the Bruce Grey Trail Network website.
