Tay Township is proud to provide the Tay Shore Trail to residents and visitors to enjoy as a natural recreational venue. In 2004, the Trans Canada Trail Foundation gifted the 17 km of abandoned CN rail corridor to Tay Township.
In June 2006, phase one was completed from the Wye River to Victoria Harbour. In September 2007, phase two was completed from Victoria Harbour to Waubaushene. Council took the initiative to link the community of Port McNicoll through an agreement with the property owner.
The Trestle Trail section of the Tay Shore Trail was completed in September 2007 for a total of 18.5 km of paved recreational trail. This invaluable resource combines the benefits of physical activity with the enjoyment of a natural setting.
Interpretive historical and nature plaques guide your way along the trail, through the natural setting of rivers, ponds, wetlands, Georgian Bay, forest and field areas and the quant atmosphere of our community villages.
