Caledon Trailway in Fall

The Caledon Trailway follows the path of an abandoned railway line that once lined Hamilton and Barrie. The multi-use trail spans the Town of Caledon from Terra Cotta in the South-west to Palgrave in the North-east, about 35km.  The flat terrain and crushed limestone surface make it very pleasant riding even with a road bike.

My family did an outing to the trail near the Durham/York boundary to a bike ride.  Driving west on Hwy 9, we headed south on Mount Wolfe Road.  We accidentally drove past the trailhead, which crosses Mount Wolfe Road just north of the railway tracks, but eventually found it.  We rode the section through Palgrave.  There aren't too many amenities along the trail in this section.  A good picnic spot, gas station, saw a sign for a bakery down the road.  It was a lovely ride and I hope to come back to cycle, hike, or ski more of this trail.

The road crossings all have narrow gates.  Our Chariot Carrier just managed to squeeze through.  There's parking for a few vehicles at all the road crossings.
