We have travelled on this trail a few times to get from the train station to downtown. It's so peaceful. Everyone we met were friendly, even the dogs. We've been through this when the leaves were changing. Just strolled along, listening to the water and the dry leave rustling. I'll be back.

We did the downtown east part of the trial. In that area, well marked with posted signs explaining the sites. But, we only made so far before the heat, lack of direction, and Brockville Museum caused us to call it quits. My recommendation is map the trial some before heading out. It was a pleasant walk and we enjoyed the... More

Best described as a 'Linear Park' the trail winds its way through the historic area and then on through the suburbs. Parts of it are on old railway track beds. It is really well maintained and has plenty of benches to sit and chill. The local historic society has posted information posters at various points that provide an insight into... More

My wife and I cycled from Brockville to Ganagoque and back while we were Brockville. The bicycle path was in great condition and well maintained with very few elevation changes. It's just over 30 km each way and there are a few places to stop for bathroom and thirst breaks. We were surprised how few people were on it. It's... More

A nice walk along the shore of the St. Lawrence River. Lots of historic plaques and sites along the route. Nicely treed and landscaped. It is a bit disjointed in places, and you might find yourself looking for the continuation of the trail as you cross a parking lot or roadway here and there.

This trail is well maintained, has beautiful foliage, clean paths, benches to rest, garbage containers for disposing of rubbish and poop bags, and lots of different scenery along the waterfront portion. Brilliant trail to walk.

I knew that Brockville had been working on the Brock Trail for a while. Last summer, I had the pleasure of walking it downtown. The grass was trimmed nicely, it was clean, the water was refreshing for my dog to get his belly and paws wet in. There were many people who had done up the sides of their properties... More

Nice relaxing path with lots of trees. It does cross a lot of streets but they are well marked with stop signs so those unfamiliar aren't going to walk into traffic.

We went for a cycle - the trail could use some better signage as many times we did not know where to go... also the trail is not continuous and so sometimes you end up in a subdivision not knowing where to go. Where the trail is continuous it is a lovely peaceful cycle along a river/creek.
