The Amherstburg–Essex Greenway is a 5.5-kilometre (3.4 mi) paved rail trail along a former CN Rail spur line in the town of Essex, Ontario, Canada. As of May 2013, the trail extends from Sadler's Park in Essex towards Edgars Road. CN Rail had donated this spur line in 1997, following the donation of its other subdivision, which is now the Chrysler Canada Greenway, in 1993, to ERCA, which manages the trail. The total distance of the former rail line is 26 kilometres (16 mi), and extends via McGregor to Amherstburg. ERCA has stated they plan on linking to the Chrysler Canada Greenway and Amherstburg when funds become available.
