Caledon’s Celebration on the Great Trail

Written by Patti Foley

Caledon is one of approximately 200 communities across Canada to hold a “Celebration on The Great Trail” to mark the connection of the Trans Canada Trail from coast to coast to coast.

The Caledon Trailway was the very first officially designated part of the TCT and the TCT pavilion in Caledon East was the first one built in the country. It started here! Today we have part of the Greenbelt Route and the Oak Ridges Trail along the Trailway, plus a connection to the north end of the Humber Valley Heritage Trail and soon a connection to the Waterfront Trail via the Etobicoke Creek Trail and a northern extension.

We are inviting past and present mayors and members of council, conservation authorities, trail organizations, hiking/walking/cycling groups, members of our old Trailway Committee, local businesses and many more – all who have been part of creating and enhancing the Caledon Trailway and our part of the Trans Canada Trail.
