Chatham-Kent has recreational trails for users of all ages and experience. These trails provide positive health, environmental, and economic benefits, helping to create more vibrant and livable communities.
The Municipality of Chatham-Kent maintains over 70 km of recreational trails and pathways, and more trails are being planned in collaboration with communities across the region. Ranging in length from 500 m to 5.8 km, the trails have been constructed with a variety of surfaces to appeal to walkers, runners, and cyclists.
Another 60 km of additional trails are located in Provincial Parks and Conservations Areas within the municipality. Two regional multi-use trails also pass through the borders of Chatham-Kent: the TransCanada Trail, which will eventually cross the entire length of the country, and the Waterfront Trail, celebrating the waterfronts of the Great Lakes. Both are renowned tourism attractions, and can be enjoyed by residents and visitors alike!
