Leamington is now connected to this trail after the completion of a section running from County Road 8 to County 18. This section — a former railway line west of Highway 77 — is now a 10.5-kilometre gravel trail.
Recognizing the importance of financial support to complete this trail, the TCT contributed funds to help communities initiate this project. The cost of building the latest portion of the trail were shared by Trans Canada Trail, the County of Essex and the municipality of Leamington.
“There are a lot of exciting things in Essex County and this gives people a way to travel around,” said Leamington’s engineer project supervisor Alex Del Brocco. “It’s going to be used. People in the county love it because they don’t have to walk or ride on the busy roads. They can feel safe. There are fences and gates to stop cars from going on the path.”
