Avon Trail is a hiking trail, 110 km from St. Mary’s to Conestogo, passing near to Stratford, Amulree, St. Agatha, Wellesley Erbsville, St. Jacobs and Waterloo. About eighty percent of the Trail crosses private land; the club is grateful to the landowners who grant the club access to some of the most attractive countryside in Ontario. All Avon Trail members assent to the Trail User’s Code which assures respect of the land and the landowner.
The Trail is a proud participant in the Ontario Legacy Trails and forms a connecting link between the Thames Valley trail to the west and the Grand Valley Trail to the east. The Trail is maintained by volunteers.
The club’s purpose is to groom and maintain the Trail to ensure a safe and enjoyable walking experience, to promote health through walking and hiking activities, and to contribute to the conservation of our natural environment.
