The Hamilton to Brantford Rail-Trail is Ontario's first entirely off-road, interurban hiking and biking trail. The Hamilton Region Conservation Authority owns and maintains the trail from Hamilton to Jerseyville, and the Grand River Conservation Authority owns and maintains the trail from Jerseyville to Brantford. Trail users can enjoy 32 kilometres (20 miles) of completely resurfaced trail on the abandoned roadbed of the Toronto, Hamilton and Buffalo Railway (TH&B). The railway, affectionately known as "To Hell and Back", provided transportation to communities along its route from 1894. It was officially abandoned in 1988 as a result of a landslide and completed as a Rail-Trail in 1996.
