Marina 200

Cornwall is emerging as one of the top cycling destinations in Ontario, and for good reason. You can cycle kilometers of traffic-free trails along the shores of the St. Lawrence River to a series of islands surrounded by the remnants of historic villages that were submerged over half a century ago. Cycling routes can take you through other key landmarks from the Battle of Crysler’s Farm to the St. Lawrence Seaway and Hydro Project. The cycling hub is the Cornwall Civic Complex, where you can enjoy complimentary parking, tourism information, maps and bike rentals.
