In 2015, Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) initiated work on the creation of an inter-municipal, recreational trail along the entire 113 km length of the Main Valley of Credit River. The City of Brampton, along with the municipalities of Mississauga, Halton Hills, Caledon and Orangeville are working with the CVC, the Credit Valley Conservation Foundation and the Credit Valley Heritage Society on this ambitious plan. Upon completion (estimated to be 20+ years) hikers and cyclists will be able to travel from Lake Ontario in Port Credit to the Headwaters of the Credit River near Orangeville. Creation of the trail is intended to promote long-term protection and conservation of the valley and celebrate the Credit’s many First Nations, natural and cultural heritage resources.
The CVC and its partners are working on the development of a strategy to guide the trail’s delivery. This strategy is expected to be completed this Fall 2017. Brampton is assisting the CVC in the identification of an optimal trail alignment and is identifying the land resources to make the trail a reality. Given that much of the lands within the Credit River Valley in Brampton remain in private ownership, land securement options will be explored.
