General Information

Located North of the Merrit Trail, the Green Ribbon Trail passes through the Barnsdale Marsh, a provincially significant wetland.  The trail's north end will leave you at the rural-urban divide on Third Street Louth, allowing you to explore further West into the Niagara's scenic rural routes or go East to the lively and historic Port Dalhousie.  The Green Ribbon Trail was developed by the local community and is dedicated to missing children.
