Map of Erin Centre Trail

Improvements to the Erin Centre Trail (Ninth Line to Winston Churchill Transitway Station) were completed in September 2020. This trail was supported and identified in the updated 2018 Cycling Master Plan.

The City undertook improvements on this trail to meet the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), making it safe and inclusive for all.

Trail improvements included the following features and amenities:

  • Asphalt paved trail to meet AODA standards
  • Armour stone rest areas
  • Two rest areas with benches and informative trailhead signs
  • Garbage bins along the trail at street entrances

Yes, the trail connects to Winston Churchill Transitway Station and car pool lot (south of Angel Pass Drive) and there are several transit stops close to the trail. Visit triplinx.ca to plan your trip or to locate transit stops.

The trail connects Golder Community Park, Jim Murray Community Park and McCarron Park. Access to the future Churchill Meadows Community Centre and Park is at the intersection of Janice Drive and Ninth Line.

The City has added line and image markings on the trail surface to show pedestrians and cyclists which side of the trail to stay on.

Dogs are welcome on the trail as long as they are kept on a leash and owners clean up after them (e.g. stoop and scoop).

The City has installed regulatory signage prohibiting motorized vehicles on the trail. There are also existing offset gates which have been preserved. These gates prevent vehicles to enter the trail corridor, but allow for wheelchairs, pedestrians, strollers, bicycles to pass through the gates.

Coyote sightings are common in Mississauga and surrounding areas. The City’s website provides resources for residents on coyotes and other wildlife in Mississauga.
