17 Kilometre Herb Gray Parkway Trail
The approximately 17 kilometre multi-use trail running the length of the Parkway is the first trail that has been incorporated into a major provincial highway project in Ontario. The trail network features a continuous multi-use lit pathway, with bridges and tunnels that allow pedestrians and cyclists to travel the length of the parkway without encountering vehicles. Rest areas and interpretive signs are also located where there are features of interest and to provide users a spot to rest and enjoy their surroundings. Signage along the trails includes information about the parkway, regional and cultural heritage, First Nation culture and history, and the special natural areas.
Accessibility and Safety
Trail bridges vary in length and are designed to meet current accessibility and safety standards.
Twenty-six (26) emergency call stations are located along the trail system at tunnel top rest areas, trail tunnels, in areas of close proximity to open water, and in areas where there is limited egress or where users may feel vulnerable.
Lighting is provided along the multi-use trail, at trailheads, at street crossings, entrances and exits for trail bridges, in the pedestrian tunnels, and at rest areas.
