The following 4 trail heads comprise a brief listing only of all the places the Avon Trail is accessed along its 113 km length from St. Marys to Conestogo.
Try out the trail; if you like what you find, consider purchasing edition 7.5 of the Avon Trail Guide containing detailed information about all trailhead locations. The Trail Guide is available online or at the Stratford Tourism office, Fanfare Books, St. Marys Tourism or other locations listed on our website. Your purchase supports ongoing trail maintenance by dedicated volunteers.
Many trailheads are marked with a small 4” x 4” diamond sign at the road side.
Once at a trailhead, look for and follow the 2” x 6” white blazes (main Trail) painted on trees or poles, or blue blazes for the Stratford Side Trail.
