McMaster University recognizes that the University and surrounding Hamilton area, including their nature spaces, are situated on traditional territories shared between the Haudenosaunee confederacy and Anishnaabe nations. These lands are protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum belt. The wampum uses the symbolism of a dish to represent the territory, and one spoon to represent that the people are to share the resources of the land and only take what they need.

Chedoke Radial Trail

City of Hamilton

The Chedoke Radial Trail is a 2.7-kilometre section of the Bruce Trail that traverses the Niagara Escarpment. Designed to be a pedestrian and bicycle pathway, the trail can be accessed from the McMaster campus through the Hamilton-Brantford Rail Trail via Beddoe Dr adjacent to the Chedoke Golf Course. The city has a trail map of the area. It offers a scenic connection to both the downtown core and to the top of the Escarpment! The trail is also popular as an outdoor fitness area and features fitness installations throughout the trail. Many students also use the Chedoke stairs throughout the spring-summer and fall seasons for training purposes.
