Hike the Bob McMullen Linear Trail

Bob McMullen Linear Trail (3.2km)- stonedust

General Information - The Bob McMullen Linear Trail (located in the Preston section of Cambridge) is a natural trail of manicured stonedust, winding along a broad, open floodplain from Hamilton St. to Preston Auditorium.

This is a great trail to see the Grand River meet the Speed River.

We will be parking beside Preston Arena, which is at the end of Bishop Street and Hamilton Street in Preston (Cambridge).

This hike goes for a little over one hour. Pets on a leash and kids are welcome.

The confluence of the Grand and Speed Rivers provides panoramic views and excellent bird watching opportunities. Species sighted include the Great Blue Heron, Osprey, numerous ducks, Red-Tailed Hawk, and the occasional Bald Eagle. A variety of butterflies are also prevalent, included the rare Tawny Emperor.

This trail travels along the site of the original Mennonite Meeting House, Jacob Hespeler Raceway and the Rock Springs Brewery.

    I arrived late, but caught up with the group near the school. Nice walk, but tamer than I usually try and a long drive for me. It was nice to meet you and walk with you on this lovely sunny morning!

      Hi 'Ouisette, There's a fast paced uphill and down hike this Wednesday May 28 at 7pm called Karen's Kickass Hike in Kitchener that might be more your speed. We meet in the parking lot of the Walter Bean trail at 326 Riverbend Dr. Don't know if that's any closer for you but it's a fabulous workout.

    Sorry. Was really looking forward to this but don't have sitters for my kids. They are too small to bring with me. They would make the first kilometer, and then I'd be carrying them the rest, lol.

    Sorry I can't make it after all.
