Recreational enthusiasts will love the vast network of trails in Walkerton and area. Enjoy a winding walk along the Saugeen River Trail, a six-kilometre hard-packed trail designed and built by the Walkerton Rotary Club. The non-motorized trail follows the flood plain of the river and is a favourite spot for walkers and cyclists in the summer and skiers and snowshoers in the winter. Popular access points are at the north end of Jackson Street, or behind the Tim Hortons on Durham Street.
Hikers, cyclists, ATV riders and more will enjoy the Walkerton section of the Bruce County Rail Trail, which runs 82 kilometres along the former CNR corridor from Mildmay to Port Elgin. The local section starts at the Brant-Carrick township line just south of Walkerton and continues through town northwest towards Paisley.
Approved uses include walking, hiking, cycling, horseback riding, ATV riding, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, dog sledding and snowmobiling.
Another popular area is the Brant Tract Trails, located north of Walkerton on Concession 12. With over 20 kilometres of mountain bike trails, beginner and cross-country expert riders will love the scenic views available on this rural trail system.
