Township Of Brock: Beaver River Trail Extension

The Township of Brock received $466,469.00 of funding from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program for the rehabilitation of the Beaver River Trail from Cannington to Beaverton.  This work will complete the surface treatment of gravel roads along the trail route, HL2 pavement along some of the paved roads along the trail route and signage along the trail route including trailhead signage.

About Beaver River Wetland Trail

The Beaver River Trail is one of the best ways to access and savour the smells, sights and sounds of the pristine and largely undeveloped Beaver River wetland. The flat, dry trail runs along a portion of an abandoned railway bed which was purchased by the Lake Simcoe Region Conservation Authority in 1993. Although some enjoy hiking or cross-country skiing along the trail cycling enthusiasts also enjoy this Conservation Area.

Savour the cool, clean air and watch for abundant wildlife as you travel along the trail. In the summer you might see a great blue heron, red-winged blackbirds, muskrats and beavers in the wetland. Marsh marigolds, violets and water lilies can also be seen growing here.

The trail between Blackwater and Sunderland is approximately 4 km, and between Sunderland and Cannington is about 13 km long. Please remember to arrange for someone to pick you up at the end of the linear trail, to take you back to your departure point and vehicle.

This 17 km trail follows the original rail bed between Blackwater and Cannington. It is popular for horseback riding, cycling, skiing and walking. No motorized vehicles are allowed except snowmobiles.
