Spend time outside enjoying nature by walking, hiking or cycling on one of the trails winding through the Town of Innisfil.

Trans Canada Trail

The Trans Canada Trail runs through Innisfil along the old CN rail line. This one-way, nine-kilometre trail, which is part of the Thornton-Cookstown Trail section, is firm with paved and gravel sections, with a difficulty rating of moderate.

The trail is accessible and perfect for jogging, walking, cycling and horseback riding. It is also used during the winter months for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling. Pedestrians should remain alert for snowmobiles in the winter months.
