Heritage Trails

Here we list abandoned railway rights of way which have been turned into recreational trails. These are listed by railway or railway subdivision.
Individual structures such as bridges and culverts will continue to be shown in the provincial listings:
Structures in Ontario

Prescott (O&P/StL&P/CPR)
Osgoode Link Parkway

The Osgoode Link Pathway is another of Ontario’s reclaimed railway tracks, repurposed for cycling. The trail is mostly flat, stone-dust surfaced and runs for 47km, cutting across the Ottawa’s countryside - sometimes alongside the Rideau River, sometimes through sprawling fields.
Note that the section Leitrim Rd to Bowesville Rd near Earl Armstrong is currently closed/detoured due to Trillium Line extension.  New and renewed bike paths will be established along most of the Trillium Line.
There is a parking lot for the trail at the former station site on Main St. Osgoode. The trail basically goes north from there but is passable through Osgoode as far as the crossing at Buckles St.
