Top Places to Get Active Outdoors

Brantford is home to an abundance of trail networks, parks and outdoor spaces that you can safely explore this summer. Get some fresh air and reconnect with nature by walking, hiking, cycling, or paddling through some of these beautiful spaces.

With over 70km of nature trails to hike, run or cycle, the Hub of Ontario Trails links three major branches of the Trans Canada Trail at Brant’s Crossing, located in downtown Brantford on the Grand River. Many of Brantford’s historic sites are also located on the city trails or can be easily accessed from them. These include: Mohawk Chapel, the Bell Homestead, Woodland Cultural Centre, the Canadian Military Heritage Museum, Glenhyrst Art Gallery, the Brantford Armory and the War Memorial.

The Brantford Rotary Bike Park provides a safe place for novice and professional bikers to practice their skills. With beginner, intermediate and expert tracks, jumps and ramps, bikers can safely build on their abilities before progressing. Please note that new safety protocols have put in place by the City of Brantford, signage with more information has been posted at the Bike Park. 

Paddle along on the Grand River

The Grand River weaves its way through Brantford, Six Nations of the Grand River, and the County of Brant, linking our three communities together. Area outfitters make it easy for you to gear up and go. Opt for a safe, and socially distant, paddle with Grand Experiences or Grand River Rafting.
