Walking Trails

Chatham-Kent is home to over 55 trails, including six in Ontario's second-oldest Provincial Park, Rondeau Park. Explore unique landscapes from the ridges and winding water in Clear Creek Forest, to local wood sculptures and views of open water along the South Lakeshore Trail in Mitchell's Bay. 

We have over 130km of trails throughout Chatham-Kent, so come prepared to enjoy a day of leisurely hiking with routes for the whole family and space for solo exploring. Check the Chatham-Kent Trails Council website for complete details on trail accessibility and amenities.

There are an additional ten trails throughout the Municipality managed by the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority (CM Wilson and Two Creeks Conservation Areas) and Provincial Parks (at RondeauWheatley and Clear Creek Forest). Check out each trail to experience a different piece of beautiful Chatham-Kent.

If you are looking to explore multiple trails across CK, you can combine your outdoor excursions with corks and kegs, patios, bakeries, ice cream, and foodies day activities to refuel your energy along the way. Don't want to leave these beautiful landscapes? We totally get it. Check out some favourite local spots to picnic and bring your food with you!
