Saugeen Rail Trail

The Saugeen Rail Trail is a year round,  multi-use trail that connects Southampton and Port Elgin, Ontario.  Built on an old railway line the trail is easily accessed and used by visitors and residents alike.

A popular trip is to travel the entire trail by bike from Port Elgin to Southampton and loop back along the scenic Lakeshore Trail where beautiful views of Lake Huron can be experienced. The circular trail can be ridden in either direction and can be accessed from many different points.

Access: The trail head is at River Street in Port Elgin, a few blocks north of the town centre and east of Hwy 21. There are several access points – some with parking, some without.  See the access points page for details.
