Stop 19 Trail

This rail trail lies in the northwest quadrant of Welland. It extends from the Welland River north- west to Pelham's boundary. Less formally, the trail continues north to Alexander Street in Fonthill. Two main sections exist in Welland: the first between Thorold Road and Woodlawn Road, and the second between Thorold Road and Pitch Street (along Prince Charles Drive). Remaining sections of the trail comprise less formal linkages.

Begin your walk north of Thorold Road West and continue along the Welland River to Quaker Road. Here, the trail joins to the Steve Bauer trail. This 4.4-kilometre trail is mainly stone dust and is accessible by wheelchairs and strollers. This route was formerly the NS&T Welland Line. From May 1908 to March 1959, it transported passengers via electric train between Welland and Fonthill.

The two main sections of the present- day trail were completed by 1987. The first took four years of planning and implementation and was part of the Ontario Neighbourhood Improvement Program. The second was improved by the Welland Public Works Division in 1987 and 1988.
