The Delhi Rail Trail is a 13.8km trail that takes you from the outskirts of Delhi into the heart of Simcoe, where it connects with the Norfolk Sunrise Trail, giving you the option to continue on to Port Dover or to Waterford.

Passing through old fields, by farmhouses, and through forests, you’ll get a real sense of the landscape of the area. There are benches and bike stands at almost every trail access point to easily take breaks along the route. Before you get into Simcoe, you’ll pass by one of the area’s first solar farms, where solar panels stretch as far as the eye can see to the north.

This trail supports a variety of activities including hiking, cycling, and cross-country skiing. This portion of the trail is part of the Trans Canada Trail, it is hoped to be extended west past Delhi to connect to the Trans Canada Trail outside of Tillsonburg.

This rail trail has access points every 3km (approximately), making it easy enough to choose how long you would like to walk for. The grade is fairly level and the trail surface is mainly crushed stone and soil making it an easy trail.
