Clearview-Collingwood Train Trail
Clearview – Collingwood Train Trail
Total Distance: 12 km
The Clearview Collingwood Train Trail is a crushed gravel, linear trail connecting Collingwood to Stayner in Clearview Township. It follows an abandoned rail line which used to be a part of the Ontario Simcoe and Huron Railway system, which connected Collingwood to Toronto. Prior to its abandonment in 1960, passengers enjoyed views of the tranquil landscape along the way.
Now used as a multi-use trail, hikers, bikers, and cross country skiers can enjoy this flat trail, stopping in either Stayner or Collingwood for lunch or a break.
