The Merritt Trail begins at Bradley Street in south St. Catharines, continues through to Martindale Road in west St. Catharines and connects with the Green Ribbon Trail.
The Merritt Trail will be closed between Brewery St. and McGuire St. until Fall 2016 to accommodate the reconstruction of the Burgoyne Bridge; a detour route is signed. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
This 11-kilometre trail is not continuous, so walkers wishing to follow the trail from beginning to end are advised to pick up a map.
History enthusiasts will thoroughly enjoy viewing many of the old sections of the once-active Second Welland Canal. Stone dust provides an ideal pathway for foot travellers and bicyclists alike.
