The Cataraqui Trail

The Cataraqui Trail is a year-round, shared-use recreation trail. In spring, summer and fall it welcomes everyone from hikers to cyclists. In winter it is open to snowmobilers bearing a current Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs trail permit. Cross-country skiers are welcome to share the trail. We encourage all users to purchase an annual (Jan to Dec) $25 membership.
The Friends of the Cataraqui Trail advocates for the sustainability, enjoyment and stewardship of the Cataraqui Trail. The Friends group supports the public use of the Trail, promotes the Cataraqui Trail and assists the Cataraqui Regional Conservation Authority (CRCA) as a volunteer work force for light maintenance and to monitor and report trail hazards and maintenance issues to the CRCA.
The Cataraqui Trail is part of the conservation lands of the Cataraqui  Region Conservation Authority.

Trail Alert

Cataraqui Trail users are being asked to avoid the section of trail near Clear Lake Road due to a culvert failure and sink hole. The impacted section of trail is east of Marina Road and west of Clear Lake Road. Trail users are being asked to detour around the area using Chaffey's Lock Road at this time while Cataraqui Conservation staff assess the damage and work to fix the trail. Further details will be posted on the Cataraqui Conservation website and on social media. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
