The City of Cambridge has more than 50 km of natural and urban trails. Some of our trails follow the banks of the Speed and Grand Rivers!
Urban trails are located throughout the developed areas of the city. They are hard surfaced (pavement or concrete) and as such most are winter maintained.
Natural river area trails and woodlot trails are not winter maintained due to their location within natural environmental areas and their natural surfaces (stone screenings or gravel). These trails cannot be plowed or salted, and use of them is at your own risk. Exercise extreme caution at all times!
