Etobicoke Creek Recreational Trail interregional connection now complete!


Walk, hike or cycle continuously from Brampton to Mississauga and Caledon.

The much-anticipated interregional connection on the Etobicoke Creek Recreational Trail​ from Brampton to Mississauga and Caledon is now complete.

Whether for walking, hiking or cycling, the scenic Etobicoke Creek Recreational Trail extends approximately 34.5 kilometres, along the Etobicoke Mimico Watershed and through natural and urban settings. 

The new connection fills a critical gap in the trail between Brampton and Mississauga, allowing safe passage under Highway 407 and Highway 410. It provides a continuous off-road active transportation route that connects Lake Ontario and the Waterfront Trail to the Greenbelt Trail in Caledon. More than 4,000 trees and 14,000 shrubs have been planted by the TRCA and City along the Kennedy Valley to enhance the environmental benefits of the trail.

The new connection allows users to expand their experience to include inter-city travel, accessible year-round. In Brampton, the trail meanders through the downtown core, providing access to a wide range of cultural and seasonal activities. Click here​ to view a map of the trail.

The initiative was a collaborative effort between the City of Brampton, Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), Region of Peel, Town of Caledon, City of Mississauga, and the Ministry of Transportation.

This is all a part of the City’s Active Transportation Master Plan, which will help build a connected cycling and pedestrian network across the city (and connecting to neighbouring municipalities) to enable safer, more convenient travel by non-motorized modes. As a Green City, the Plan also focusses on providing safe, attractive and connected cycling trails. To learn more about the City’s Active Transportation Master Plan, click here.

Three kilometres of the Etobicoke Creek Recreational Trail are sponsored by Coke Canada Bottling, beginning at the Kennedy Road trail entrance and ending at the city limit. This is the City’s first corporate sponsor for a recreational trail in Brampton and will contribute to ongoing trail maintenance.
