Wilson's Falls Trail is a unique trail system situated along the Muskoka River and Wilson's Falls. This forested trail network offers steep hills and diverse terrain creating many route options for users including connections to The Trans Canada Trail. The Town of Bracebridge Active Transportation Advisory Committee has a goal to transform Wilson's Falls Trail into a Signature Trail.

Signature Trails provide a unique and memorable experience for visitors that go beyond the ordinary. They provide the user with excitement, challenge and achievement combined with comfort and reassurance that you're safe and won't get lost. The Town recognizes that this trail has necessary improvements required in order to achieve this goal.

Trail improvements will provide both residents and visitors a destination that encourages recreational pursuits, improves physical and mental health and creates community connectedness.
