Description

Ontario’s Greenbelt covers almost 2 million acres, and is the world’s largest permanently protected greenbelt, which helps keep our farmlands, forests, wetlands safe & sustainable. Home to 2 specialty crop regions: the Holland Marsh, & the Niagara Peninsula Tender Fruit and Grape Area, the Greenbelt accounts for 80% of Ontario's peache, grape, cherry, plum, & apricot production.

One of the best ways to explore the Greenland is on 2 wheels. Follow the signed bicycle route to explore the beautiful, protected countryside. Use our online map and curated itineraries to discover lush forests, winding rivers, and family farms as you travel across this stunning landscape. Sections of the Route, such as the step inclines of the Niagara Escarpment, are challenging for even the most experienced of cyclists but leisurely rides for children or older riders are also available. The Caledon Trailway, NW of Brampton, has 30km of path along an historic rail bed and is suitable not just for recreational cyclists, but also walkers, joggers, and the occasional trotting horseback rider.

When you need a break from the bike, you can also explore the magnificent Bruce Trail or Oak Ridges Trail, as they crisscross this protected landscape.
