The Kissing Bridge Trailway travels for 45 km through rural communities and rivers and wetlands of southern Ontario along the right-of-way of a former railway. You can take a 2km detour to see the West Montrose Kissing Bridge, which is the last covered bridge in Ontario. The trail surface is stone chip for much of the trailway. Because the trailway runs along former rail lands, it's largely flat and even.
The Kissing Bridge Trailway was established in 1998, when the County of Wellington and the Regional Municipality of Waterloo jointly leased part of the Guelph to Goderich railway line from the Province of Ontario for use as a recreational trail.
My name is Mickey Scott and I will attempt an unsupported FKT of the Kissing Bridge Trail on the morning of March 24th, 2019. I will take the westerly route (established above) from Guelph to Millbank, which includes a detour through the Kissing Bridge itself. This will be my first ever FKT attempt of any kind, and hopefully not my last!
Hi everyone, my name is Alana Fletcher and I intend to set a women's FKT for the Kissing Bridge Trail this coming Sunday, July 14th. I will run from West to East and include the Kissing Bridge detour. Results to come!
I, Ryan Flint, being of (mostly) sound mind and body, do hereby declare that I will be attempting to run after the Unsupported Kissing Bridge Trail FKT, taking the westerly route from Guelph to Millbank, on Saturday May 2nd. It will be my first official FKT attempt and will have live satellite gps data to track my effort (link to follow once all the newfangled gizmos are properly set up)
We're about 1 week out, and as of now the trail remains open with no plans for closure. So, it looks like we're a go. Follow me on Saturday May 2nd at share.garmin.com/runraggedrhino
Planning on making an attempt, to lower the unsupported Kissing Bridge Trailway FKT, by 6 minutes, on May 24, 2020 (Guelph to Millbank).
