The Great Lakes Waterfront Trail runs on scenic County Rd 2 through most of the Township of South Glengarry. This winding stretch of road follows the shoreline of the St. Lawrence River and passes through the quaint villages of Glen Walter and Summerstown on the way to Lancaster. East of Lancaster, the Trail follows the South Service Rd. for about 10 km before rejoining County Rd 2 for the final stretch extending to the Quebec Border. Great camping opportunities in Charlottenburg Park and Glengarry Park both of which have camper cabins as well.
- County Rd. 2 from Cornwall to Lancaster has a designated paved shoulder
- There’s a Dairy Queen and a Tim Horton’s in Lancaster for Trail users in need of replenishment or a rest stop
