The Talbot Trail is a historically-significant overland route completed in the 1820s. The trail extends from Windsor to Fort Erie, with sections following Highway 3.
The building of the route was overseen by Colonel Thomas Talbot. It was originally a corduroy road which eventually became Highway 3 and several modern county and regional roadways. Its original intent was to provide a continuous land route for settlers and military personnel between the Niagara region and Amherstburg, aiding in the development of the Talbot Settlement.
