The Group of Seven has a strong connection to the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, and it is only fitting that this trail should begin in Kleinburg (Vaughan), which the McMichael calls home. While the trail can be accessed at any point along the route, we suggest starting at Bindertwine Park (299 Stegman’s Mill Rd.), which leads you right onto the Humber River Trail, and where free all-day parking is available.
Recreational cyclists: mix of trails, quiet streets, and a few busier streets.
Family/leisure option: ride along Bartley Smith Greenway and Finch Hydro Corridor trails from Rutherford GO Station to Black Creek Pioneer Village.
Unpaved trail (limestone screenings) and road
