Your trails. Your voice.

We’re updating the Guelph Trail Master Plan (GTMP), a strategic document that guides how we plan, design, fund, build and maintain Guelph’s trail system.

A new and improved GTMP means we can innovate trail design guidelines, revise routes, create new trail facilities and promote trail use in our community – all with your help in prioritizing our trail needs.

This master plan update supports the City’s Strategic Plan as we continue to build strong, vibrant, safe and healthy communities that foster resilience in the people who live here.

As Guelph grows, we are also committed to planning and designing an increasingly sustainable city.


What we've heard in Round three of our engagement has now been posted.

Check out these documents to stay up to date with what we have learned through our consultations.


The Guelph Trail Master Plan was approved by Council on June 28, 2021.

Guelph City Council has approved the updated Guelph Trail Master Plan (GTMP) following community support at the Committee of the Whole meeting on June 7. Read the full news release for more details.

    Leveraging Volunteer groups and passionate trail people

    by mark_mla, 10 months ago
    Make sure to establish quality partnerships with volunteer expert trail groups like the Guelph Hiking Trail Club. Leveraging these groups can allow for better connections into Guelph urban areas from the surrounding rural trails that they already have established. Partnering, land owner agreements and volunteer construction and maintenance are great ways to advance trails in desired areas in the absence of publicly owned land or capital dollars to construct trails in a timely manner.

    Little Gems

    by Joanne McAuley, 10 months ago
    New to cycling and very nervous on local roads having been ‘doored’ twice

    Ouch

    I’m exploring every trail in Guelph and I must say I’m loving it!

    G2G is my second home!

    In town I’d like to strongly suggest better curb cut outs for cyclists

    I am a senior and getting off my bike to mount a 6” Curb is annoying

    The more trails the better as many seniors are cycling. Really healthy and safe

    Thanks

    Joanne
