The Talbot Trail

The trail, which extends from Windsor to Fort Erie through a region dubbed Ontario's "banana belt", is named after Colonel Thomas Talbot, an early settler and entrepreneur. The relatively mild climate allows tobacco and peanuts to be grown, and Carolinian forests, with trees more associated with the southern United States, to survive.
