According to Destination Ontario, “Uxbridge features over 220 kilometres of trails running through historic communities and forested lands.”

The trail system in Uxbridge is extensive so you’re going to want to do a little research before you start exploring.

The trails range in length and difficulty so check out their descriptions and pick which are best suited for you.

Don’t forget to check out the Uxbridge Urban Provincial Park, which opened July 1st!

According to Ontario Parks, the space is located on lands “that have been occupied and used by many nations including the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee and Wendat peoples in an area covered by the 1787 Johnson-Butler Purchase, also known as the Gunshot Treaty and the 1923 Williams Treaties.”

While you can’t camp at the park the following activities are permitted:

  • Hiking/walking
  • Biking/Mountain Biking
  • Pet Exercise (pets must be on a leash at all times)
  • Skiing and snowshoeing are welcomed on hiking trails. However, please note that trails are not maintained or track set and be sure to use caution during winter months.

Uxbridge awaits!
