Recreational Trails Information
Learn more about all of Oakville's recreational trails that meander across all communities and connect all sections of the town.
Temporary trail closures
You may notice that trees have been removed from some trails. This is part of the town's ongoing efforts to remove dead and dying ash trees destroyed by Emerald Ash Borer (EAB) for public safety and to help the forest regrow. Some trails may be temporarily closed while tree removals take place. Visit the Woodlands Hazard Abatement page to learn more.
Visit the cycling safety page for tips and videos on cycling safety, town bike by-laws and rules of the road.
Check out the town’s Cycling Handbook (pdf, 15.9 MB) to learn more about cycling preparedness, bikes and public transit, and much more.
You can also pick one up at one of our community centres, libraries or at Town Hall. English, Arabic, Spanish, and simplified Chinese versions are available. To learn more visit the Let’s Get Physically Literate page
