Land Acknowledgement

The Guelph Lakes and Arkell Springs Trail systems reside on lands managed by the GCRA and the City of Guelph. These are the treaty lands and territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit, who have a unique and ongoing relationship with this land. We recognize the injustices of colonial influences and the hardship forced upon our Indigenous partners. The GORBA membership and the greater community of mountain bikers are grateful to have the privilege of experiencing the natural beauty of these areas.
