Old Rail Bed – Goderich

Picture 095

The trains used to run between Auburn and Goderich, but now it has become a walking/bicycle trail in the summer and a snowmobile route in the winters.

    Would love to put my boots on this trail! Great shot.

      It is a wonderful trail of about 17 kilometers and we biked the length often, much of it through woods. At Auburn, the trail ends at where a railway trestle one stood, but is now gone and so you would be rewarded by the sight of the lovely Maitland River flowing wide and slow in an isolated spot.

      The best thing of all is that the grade of the rail bed is a slow incline all the way to Auburn, which means an easy, fast ride back to Goderich on the shores of Lake Huron.

      A better way to spend a summer morning would be difficult to find.

      You won’t recognize the place since the F3 tornado blasted through the center of town in August 2011. We were heading into town from Grand Bend and decided the storm looked far too nasty and turned off Hwy 21 towards Benmiller, possibly saving ourselves from meeting the Cowardly Lion and Tin Man. 🙂
