William Granger Greenway Trail

This section of the Humber River Trail is dedicated to William Granger, former Toronto and Region Conservation Authority Chair in recognition for his contributions to watershed management. The William Granger Greenway is more than 5 kilometres in length and allows you to connect to other systems and key local destinations.

The trail begins at Rutherford Road, linking to the Boyd Conservation area trails to the south. North of Rutherford Road, it crosses the Humber River and connects to

Canada Company Avenue and continues north under Major Mackenzie Drive. North of Major Mackenzie, you can end your day by visiting the Canadian McMichael Art Collection or continue up to Binder Twine Park. The trail is open and free of charge for hiking, biking and walking and includes several pedestrian bridge valley crossings.

Along the trail you will experience several significant natural habitats, cultural and heritage resources, recreational and educational facilities and the historic aboriginal trade route known as the Toronto Carrying-Place Trail. These attributes contributed to Humber River’s designation as a Canadian Heritage River in 1999.
