Elgin County boasts over 100 km of trails winding through the countryside for on-foot or 2-wheeled enjoyment, and is connected to the Trans Canada Trail, the longest recreational trail in the world. Hike through the County and take in the scenic beauty of “Carolinian Canada”. Similar in climate to the Carolinas, our region provides perfect conditions for our unique Carolinian Forests and wildlife to thrive. Elgin’s Fingal Wildlife Area alone has 21 km of hiking trails for all abilities, some described by self-directed trail guides. Enjoy a day or two getting back to nature.
