Hamilton to Dunville Rail Trail Help Needed

Hi folks,
Several years ago I attempted this trip, but had to make a change of plans just before Caledonia because of the poor quality of the trail. I'm wanting to try this again but I suspect the portion from south of Caledonia, running south-east to Dunville is incomplete.

Does anyone know about this?

You will be delighted to know I have no idea where you are going this time!


Fair winds!

Doubtless I am missing a key cultural reference, but you avatar now looks a little like me.

It's "Dunnville", if that's any help.

Thought that went through West Lincoln instead of Caledonia. At least MapQuest shows rails in that area.
Try giving us more input, not all of us ride in the Great White North.

Oops, it was in a fold of the map. Yes, Dunnville.

My Advermap recreational trails map shows a trail running from York Road (southeast of Caledonia) in a straight line to Dunnville. It has no name attributed to it. My question is does it exist or is it the ramblings of a mad cartographer?

If it doesn't, then I'm looking for a pleasant route back to the Big Smoke (Toronto) from Caledonia without heading back down the Chippewa trail.
