Spanning the full 32 km (20 miles) of her epic journey, the Laura Secord Legacy Trail is a permanent monument to Laura’s legacy, as well as the site of the 2013 Laura Secord Commemorative Walk.Considerable research was undertaken to identify the route Laura Secord took on that fateful June day in 1813 from the Secord Homestead in Niagara-on-the-Lake to DeCew House in Thorold, where she delivered her famous message. We have drafted a modern-day approximation of the route that can be negotiated safely by hikers of average abilities. The five-stage route follows everything from ancient forested Indian trails to modern city sidewalks. You can hike the entire route, or break it up into shorter segments.
