The Kawartha Trans Canada Trail

The Kawartha Trans Canada Trail Association worked for more than a decade to make this section of the national Trans Canada Trail a reality. The 53.8km (3m wide) trail is hard-packed limestone which provides flat level surface, ideal for a variety of trail uses. For the most part, the trail is relatively flat, with modest changes in elevation throughout its entire length. Trail users will find facilities such as benches, bicycle racks, and picnic shelters along the way.

The crushed limestone surface of the trail is ideal for hiking, walking and running, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing it is also safe for horseback riding. The trail is suitable for hybrid, cyclocross and long distance touring bikes. Enjoy this relatively flat surface free from traffic. Motorized vehicles are not permitted on the trail so it’s quiet and safe for all trail users.
