The Tom Thomson Trail is a 3-season, hiking, cycling and horseback riding route between Meaford and Owen Sound. From Fred Raper Park at Meaford’s waterfront the trail follows paved roads, woodland trails and gravel roads across the Niagara Escarpment and rolling farmland overlooking Georgian Bay.  The varied terrain and many access points over the 40 km route provide opportunities for bird-watchers, mountain bikers, photographers, geo-cachers and hikers.

One of the highlights is passing the historic Leith Church and the cemetery where Tom Thomson is thought to be buried. The suspicious death of this influential Canadian artist in Algonquin Park in 1917 remains a mystery in Canadian history.

Spring, summer and autumn excursions along the Tom Thomson Trail offer changing colours in the hardwood forests, views of century farms along country roads and opportunities to enjoy the unique landscapes of the Niagara Escarpment.
