You talked! We listened! As a Canadian campaign we want you to feel secure about donating in Canadian dollar currency instead of US currency. Visit our new campaign donation page at https://www.tilt.com/tilts/guelph-to-goderich-rail-trail. We have moved our campaign over to a great crowdfunding website called Tilt. Through this we are able to not only have no fees on donations we earn but when you send a donation using a Visa Debit or Mastercard Debit there are no fees at all as opposed to other platforms which can take up to 10% in site fees and credit card fees! Meaning every cent goes to this great initiative. Thank you for understanding and sharing your concerns, and thank you for donating. You can look below for our donation perks.

Each trail segment and community can benefit directly from this $60,000 fundraising campaign. We’ve had a tremendous amount of support in the past from communities that are touched by the G2G Rail Trail experience. The 127 km route is made up of the amazing Kissing Bridge Trailway, Perth Harvest Pathway and the Lake Huron Route.

G2G Crowdfunding Campaign Info:

The Guelph to Goderich Rail Trail surrounds cyclists and hikers with the richness of Ontario’s pastoral landscape and rural heritage. Through hushed forest groves and rolling Mennonite farmland, across river valleys and wetlands, past 13 villages and towns, to the sunset horizon of one of the world’s Great Lakes, visitors of all fitness and skill levels can enjoy any part of the G2G’s 127-km length through four counties. Completion of the G2G Rail Trail opens Ontario’s pastoral heartland to the global fitness and recreation phenomena of backpacking and cycle tourism. The G2G helps rural Ontarians share their countryside and hospitality with the world.

Public Notice – Fitness is what Ontario Trails and Trailhead North, is all about!

The Ontario Government released its first update to Ontario’s Health and Physical Education curriculum since 1998 on Monday.

While the government came under scrutiny for the progressive health and sex education inclusions, other shifts in the curriculum also exist, including what appears to be a further shift away from formalized sport, toward fitness.

The new Health portion of the curriculum revamps an out of date document which made little to no mention of topics such as gender identity, self concept, and communications technology, and now encompasses an overall aim at understanding ones self, accepting others, and forming healthy relationships.

Ontario Becoming Best Trail Destination Worldwide

La Cloche Silhouette Trail in Ontario Canada

If you are planning your summer hiking excursion, you may want to add Ontario to your short list. Over the past couple years,  Ontario has become one of the leading trail destinations worldwide. If you search trail information on Twitter, chances are, you’ll run across a number of trail-related Twitterites in Ontario. In general, Ontario provides a robust outdoor recreation scene with trails as one of their main focuses. Although hiking and backpacking trails make up the lion’s share of their trail system, bike trails are also beginning to pop up throughout the province. Whereas certain cities such as Amsterdam, Portland, Denver and Minneapolis are well known for biking and other areas such as Colorado, California and British Columbia are noted for hiking, Ontario is quickly and quietly becoming Trail Central by providing great trail opportunities including biking trails,hiking trails and backpacking trails. What sets Ontario apart among the various worldwide trail opportunities is their trail infrastructure and trail support system such as that provided by organizations such as Ontario Trails Council.
