The Friendship Trail forms the southerly link of the Greater Niagara Circle Route, a 150km multi-use trail system winding through the beautiful Niagara Peninsula.
The Friendship Trail is also part of the Lake Ontario Waterfront Trail - connecting to Trenton, Ontario, and the 17,000km Trans-Canada Trail - connecting to Victoria, British Columbia, St. John, Newfoundland and Tuktyuktuk.
The Friendship Trail extends 16 kms across the Town of Fort Erie, running parallel to the north shore of Lake Erie. Beginning at the Port Colborne border in the west, this relaxing and picturesque trail takes visitors through lush farmland, quaint villages, pristine watersheds, and quiet residential areas as it leads to historic Old Fort Erie, Lake Erie and the Niagara River Recreation Trail .
This will be an "out and back" trip (not a loop) and we can add on to the trail at either end as it's part of the Greater Niagara Circle Loop.I believe it is entirely paved.
Bring lots of water, a snack, cash in case we stop along the way, a camera, and sunscreen. Hopefully it's not too humid that day, and no rain!
