Kawartha Trans Canada Trail
This four season trail runs from the Regional Municipality of Durham (near Uxbridge) to the County of Peterborough (City of Peterborough). It is rich in history, following the route of a railway which operated from 1858 to 1988. Watch for the former freight shed at Mariposa and the Grand Trunk ‘witch’s hat’ station in Uxbridge. The trail links five communities, parkland, farmland and the natural environment. In Lindsay, it travels through Sir Sandford Fleming College campus, one of Canada’s most environmental schools, with wind turbines, green roofs, community gardens and solar energy projects. Further east, it goes through downtown Omemee, childhood home of musician Neil Young where you can visit the Youngtown Rock and Roll museum.
