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 third round of engagement closed December 15.

For this engagement, we want wanted you to participate using the tabs below:

  • Trail Map - provide feedback on the draft trail map and tell us what we should build first
  • Discussion Forum- provide your opinion about trail surface, trail type or the Trans Canada Trail Route
  • Tell us a story - tell us how you are using trails differently as a result of COVID-19
  • Q&A - ask us questions about the project, the engagement or anything trails

Your input will be considered in the creation of the draft master plan to be presented to Council in spring 2021.

To learn more about the project and inform your decisions, please read the documents available on the right hand panel:
