Guelph Lake Trails on


Victoria Road North

North-West Guelph, just South of the Speed River.


Riverside Park, Woodlawn Parking Lot

Parking at riverside park is readily available, and a nice short warmup ride away from the Guelph Lake Trail head. This is safer choice compared to parking on the side of the road at Victoria Rd N.

Victoria Road Trailhead Roadside Parking

Approximately 200 meters of parking on both sides of the road. We do not recommend parking here if you have children with you. This is a very busy road. We have been trying to get the city and the GRCA to build a parking lot.
