Cycling in Trent Hills
Take in the scenic hills, the waterway views and the friendly folks on a cycling tour that takes you through the three communities of Trent Hills – Warkworth, Hastings and Campbellford. There are routes suitable for all cyclists, whether you are an avid enthusiast or just out for a family fun ride. The Trans Canada Trail is an off-road experience extending 22 km from Hastings to Hoards Station, east of Campbellford. If you are looking for a longer ride, take the Trent River Truckin’ Route, one of Northumberland Tourism’s Cycling Routes and Trails. On this 63 km route you will want to take time to stop and visit the locks along the Trent-Severn Waterway, tour the Millennium Trail in Warkworth and enjoy a bite to eat at one of the cafe’s or restaurants. If you are looking for camping, Ferris Provincial Park is close by.. The Trent Hills Visitor Centre is part of the Ontario by Bike Network, with several cycle-friendly establishments. Services include visitor inquiries, bike rack, restrooms, shower facility ($), picnic area and potable water
