Routes along the waterfront for all your cycling needs

71 mi.
1,532 ft.

Cruise the Burlington and Oakville waterfronts mixed with kilometers of open-road rural riding on this fully signed 113km route following the Greenbelt Route, Great Lakes Waterfront Trail, and their signed connectors. Take it on as a 1-day shake-up ride or a 2-day leisurely ride with an added stop in Georgetown. You decide.

Near the 54 km mark you can make the choice to follow the Greenbelt Route through to Georgetown for an overnight to make for a more leisurely ride.

Note: This route is recommended for experienced road cyclists due to the length of the ride and the amount of on-road cycling. This route uses some high-traffic roads. Additionally, this route includes long remote stretches. Make sure you are well stocked with water and snacks.

This is one of 9 cycling itineraries showcasing Ontario’s best trails and two signature cycling routes–the Great Lakes Waterfront Trail and The Greenbelt Route. Celebrate the Lake Ontario watershed and cycling while supporting rural communities and local businesses.
