Toronto to Algonquin Greenway (TAG) is a work-in-progress. This website fills in the backstory, and follows the unfolding Project. Explore TAG today or glimpse our Vision for the future. TAG is a 400+ km hike, bike and paddle route embracing 30 communities from Toronto to Algonquin Park. The Greenway is a living cultural heritage trail which invites your participation.
It all began here in Haliburton Village, where an art gallery sits at the edge of a lake, on a park, at the end of an abandoned railway line. The setting of Rails End Gallery encompasses many aspects of the Greenway: railway history, public greenspace, waterway heritage, arts and culture, community gatherings, festivals, farmers market, a rail trail, village walking paths – all providing a welcome to travellers, casual ramblers and residents alike.
The Rails End was where a lot of early Greenway planning took place; the Gallery was TAG’s first Founding Partner. The restored 1878 railway station elicits comparisons to Le P’tit Train du Nord, part of Quebec’s cycling network – La Route Verte. There are similarities and differences. Like that project, TAG will take many years to be fully realized. At the moment, our project is in early development. TAG will offer 300+ kms of cycling on (rail) trails. TAG’s bike trails are interspersed with hiking paths, canoe routes, nature parks and a vintage excursion train. You’ll learn more as you look around. Please keep in touch, as TAG is just beginning to create a new international destination.
