The Upper Grand Trailway is a beautiful 4 season nature trail that is 10.5 km in length.  The old abandoned CPR line has been lovingly resurfaced to provide hikers, cyclists, cross country skiers and horseback riders access to the wonders of the countryside.

The Trail begins at Waldemar and runs westward, crossing over a unique brick-lined culvert that was built in the early 1900s.  The Boyne Creek runs through this culvert to join up with the Grand River.  As the trail winds westward, you reach County Rd. 125.  Here you can take a side tour by sidewalk heading north into the quaint village of Grand Valley to enjoy the friendly hospitality.  Notice the Grand River heads north with you. Once back on the Trail, you can continue to head westward and you will see the old train station which is now a private residence.  Further down the trail to the west, is a new bridge over the Boyne Creek.
