The Kissing Bridge Trailway travels for 45 km through rural communities and rivers and wetlands of southern Ontario along the right-of-way of a former railway.
You can take a 2km detour to see the West Montrose Kissing Bridge, which is the last covered bridge in Ontario.
The Kissing Bridge Trailway runs along former railway land that stretches over 124 km between Guelph and Goderich. The Kissing Bridge Trail makes up 45 km of the eastern stretch of the rail line. The western stretch, which starts in Goderich, is also a recreational trail.
Canadian Pacific was given permission by the Province of Ontario to abandon the railway in 1988, and the province purchased the land.
The Kissing Bridge Trailway was established in 1998, when the County of Wellington and the Regional Municipality of Waterloo jointly leased part of the line from the Province of Ontario for use as a recreational trail.
