Description

The Seguin Trail is managed by the Park-to-Park Trail Association, with sections designated as part of the Trans Canada Trail. This 60 km (37.3 mi) rail corridor is the original rail bed constructed by JR Booth in the late 1800s for moving lumber from the Ottawa River area to shipping yards on Georgian Bay and was vital in transporting grain from the west, faster than by ships through the Great Lakes. It should be noted that the trail is popular for both motorized and non-motorized trail use.

Directions

From the HWY 11/17 junction near Seymour Street, take HWY 11 south for 100 km (62.1 mi). Take exit 244 for Scotia Road/Fern Glen Road. Turn right at Fern Glen Road, and turn left to stay on Fern Glen Road. The trail begins 2 km (1.24 mi) further, at Walls.
