The Great Lakes Waterfront Trail, running along County Road 2 through South Glengarry, is part of an expansive project connecting the Quebec border in the east to Sault Ste. Marie in the west. This 3600km trail is perfect for cyclists, aiming to bring people closer to Ontario’s stunning waterfront vistas. The website offers short and long-term adventure itineraries, detailing eateries, camping options, and side trips. The Glen Walter Waterfront Bike Parkette on CR 2 at Glen Walter Park Road, featuring a bike repair station, parking, and picnic tables, is a recent addition along this trail.
The Charlottenburgh Park Trail, situated at the entrance of Charlottenburgh Park, is a 4 km foot-path loop meandering through gorgeous forest and waterfront areas. Do note, a small bridge was last reported to be closed, so plan for an alternative return route if necessary.
