Living Levee Trail

To access this trail, park at one of several city lots in the vicinity of Mill Race Park and walk through the award-winning park where formal promenades blend with historical limestone architecture.

The levee also continues north from the Parkhill Dam along Dan Spring Way, past historic Galt Collegiate Institute to Augusta Street. By following the promenade south along Water Street, past the lookout at Barradell's Loft, hikers can connect with the GRCA Rail Trail to Hamilton via Paris and Brantford.

By crossing the Main Street bridge to Dalton Court, hikers can continue south along the river's west side to Absalom's Walk, past the sculpture gardens, McDougall's Cottage Interpretive Centre and the factory mill outlets, continuing to the Waterworks Park terminus. A detour east along Main Street will take hikers to the newly paved Mill Creek Trail, an 800 m trail passing by the historic Galt Arena Gardens into Soper Park. This trail runs along on the 1850's Great Western Rail Line.
