Home of the first Trans Canada Trail Pavilion (in Caledon East) the Trailway follows the path of an abandoned rail line.
The Hamilton & Northwestern Railway built the line in the 1870's, and was later amalgamated into the Canadian National Railway, to be decommissioned in the 1980's. The Town purchased the line in 1989.
This was the first officially designated portion of the Trans Canada Trail. At the pavilion in Caledon East you will also find a developing arboretum, extensive gardens, and Caledon's Walk of Fame. Visit the Town of Caledon's website here.
The trail is multi-use, for non-motorized uses only. For motorized trails in the area please contact Peel Region.
