Gear up and go!

Pick your own path or choose from two great Greenway routes.

County Wide Active Transportation System

The County of Essex partners with local municipalities to upgrade and enhance cycling and active transportation in communities. As part of this partnership, the Town of Essex features a number of bike-friendly routes which include paved shoulders, dedicated bike lanes, and multi-use trails.

Check out their website and active transportation map online.

Chrysler Canada Greenway

Recreational cyclists will enjoy excellent sightseeing opportunities on this extension of the Trans-Canada Trail that connects the communities of Windsor, McGregor, Harrow and Kingsville.

From Windsor, take the Chrysler Canada Greenway directly to Harrow, travelling through picturesque parts of our region.

If you're destined for the shores of Lake Erie, connect to the multi-use trail along Erie Street to Dunn Road. At the end of Dunn Road, turn left and head into the heart of Colchester Centre. Restaurants and beachside fun await you.

Once you've refueled, head down County Road 50 on the CWATS Trail to enjoy EPIC Wine Country.

Cypher Systems Group Greenway

This 22-kilometre trail is the newest addition to the regional trail system and stretches from Essex Centre to Amherstburg, intersecting with the Chrysler Canada Greenway in McGregor.

In Essex Centre, take the trail at Sadler's Nature Park to the multi-use trail on South Talbot Road. Cross Highway 3 at Victoria Avenue and immediately connect to the Cypher Systems Group Greenway. It's smooth sailing to McGregor and other points south from here.
