The GRAND VALLEY TRAIL ASSOCIATION (GVTA) is a non-profit volunteer organization with a mandate to build and maintain hiking trails and promote hiking in the Grand River Valley in southwestern Ontario.

The Grand Valley Trail is a marked footpath of about 250 km that follows the Grand River watershed, starting near the town of Alton to the river’s outflow near the town of Port Maitland. In addition to maintaining the trails, the GVTA offers organized hikes and produces maps of the Grand Valley trail available in a printed guidebook and an online map application.

The work of the GVTA is made possible thanks to membership fees, the generous time of our volunteers, and corporate and individual donations. Consider supporting us with a donation.

Enjoy the trails.
