In West Montrose, you will find the West Montrose Covered Bridge which was created in 1881 and spans 198 feet across the Grand River. The bridge has been referred to as the "Kissing Bridge", a name common to most covered bridges due to the traditional toll of a kiss. The bridge is the last covered bridge in Ontario.
The Kissing Bridge Trailway runs right through the Usshers Creek development. Named after the West Montrose Covered Bridge, the trail runs 45km through rural areas, rivers and wetlands along a former railway. The trail is popular with cyclists looking for a long flat off-road ride.
Highway 86 turns into Elmira Road in Guelph. If you follow it south for about ten minutes from Usshers Creek you will arrive at Costco, banks, LCBO and Zehrs. Across the street from Costco, you will find the West End Community Centre which contains pools, hockey arena, gym and a Guelph Public Library.
About ten minutes east of Usshers Creek you will find Guelph Lake Conservation Area. If you park on Victoria Road at the Speed River, you can enter trails that go all the way to the lake. On the other side of Victoria you will find Royal Recreation Trail which takes you all the way to downtown Guelph and beyond.
Usshers Creek is a custom estate and currently Granite Homes is offering no charges for modifications to the interior. Granite Homes does not yet have a model or sales centre at the Ussher's Creek site. Instead you can visit 160 Southgate Drive in Guelph just off Highway 6, Monday to Friday and by appointment on weekends.
