Founded in 1992, the Woolwich Trails Group promotes hiking and biking on trails for health, recreation and as a low-impact transportation alternative. The group is also involved in trail maintenance and development. The Township boasts 10 public trails totalling more than 80 kilometres (see our map). Trail uses in the Township include walking, running, cycling, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling where designated. Our volunteers lead organized hikes between March and November. We also distribute A Guidebook to Woolwich Trails which includes maps and descriptions of all the local trails.

In An Emergency on Trails
In an emergency situation when police, fire or ambulance assistance is required, immediately call 911. When calling 911, report your location stating the Municipal Civic Address Number found on the green signs posted at key trail access points. These numbers are also referred as Municipla Emergency Numbers, are indicated on the maps in the guidebook, and in the text under “Parking and Access”
Volunteer Work Parties
There are always trail improvement projects and maintenance on the go in Woolwich Township. It takes a lot of volunteer power to get our network of trails tip top for residents and visitors. Contact Ann Roberts to help with a project in the works or to have your name added to our volunteer list to get notices of upcoming work parties.
