The Great Trail

The Trans Canada Trail is a recreational trail that winds across the country through every province and territory. Following the blue line below, the trail enters the northern boundary of the town of Uxbridge from Lindsay via an abandoned rail line. The trail then crosses the Uxbridge urban area, then heads south through Durham Forest lands, the Glen Major Forest to the Uxbridge-Pickering Townline where it continues south. Download your own copy for reference.
