Many of the features that make a natural trail attractive have recently been destroyed on the Cayuga bridge and rail trail. Bulldozers have torn up trees and brush, and dug up gravel to create a sort of moonscape.

The Cayuga Rail Trail is part of Haldimand County’s Trails Master Plan initiative and council has committed $1.4 million to pay for it from the ward 2 vibrancy funds.

The 1 km trail will begin at Victoria Street on the courthouse grounds, connecting to the former CN Rail corridor and then east-west across the CN bridge to exit at King George Street. The design consists of a granular trail, associated signage, trailhead structures, benches as well as composite decking over the timber decking on the bridge, including lookout platforms.
