Hiking and Walking Trails Along the Grand River Near Paris Ontario
The Rail Trail and the Grand Valley Hiking Trail.
Both of these trails run on the east side of the Grand River.
The Rail Trail is a shared trail with cyclists and cross country skiers… it is flat with a tight gravel base on top of an old railway bed… great for walking.
