The Saugeen Rail Trail connects Southampton, Saugeen Township and Port Elgin along the abandoned CN rail line. A popular trip is to travel the entire trail by bike from Port Elgin to Southampton and loop back along the scenic North Shore Road where beautiful views of Lake Huron can be experienced. As of 2002, the trail has been extended southward with the completion of the Mill Creek Loop south of Louis Street.  Extensive plans are in place to continue south to MacGregor Point Provincial Park.
