Lafarge 2000 Trail

Lafarge 2000 Trail

The Lafarge 2000 Trail officially opened on June 16, 2001. Lafarge was a major donor of in-kind materials for this millennium joint project undertaken by the former Town of Flamborough and the Hamilton Conservation Authority. This 22 km trail forms an important link in the trail networks that surround the Hamilton Area. The Lafarge 2000 Trail passes through a Niagara Escarpment re-entrant valley, along the reservoir at Christie Conservation Area, and through glacial moraines, drumlins and wetlands. It is located in the rural area of the City of Hamilton, allowing people to experience and appreciate the countryside and natural areas within the municipality – and is often used by hikers and cyclists alike.

In April 2012, employees from Lafarge and the Dundas Quarry took the morning off to clean up garbage along the Lafarge 2000 Trail as part of various Earth Week activities taking place across Lafarge sites in Eastern Canada. The team was able to remove an astonishing five truckloads of garbage from the trail and surrounding area during a morning of hard work and good cheer.
