The Caledon Trailway
The Trailway follows the path of an abandoned rail line that once linked Hamilton with Barrie. The Town of Caledon purchased 35 km of rail section in 1989 and it became the first officially designated portion of the Trans Canada Trail in 1995. The first Trans Canada Trail Pavilion in the country was built in Caledon East in 1996. Visit the Stationlands Park in Caledon East to see the pavilion and commemorative panels, pond and wetland, a developing arboretum, and Caledon’s Walk of Fame. Other Stationlands Parks are in Palgrave, Cheltenham and Inglewood. This is a multi-use trail, ideal for walking, cycling, and horseback riding, and cross-country skiing in winter.
