Boating along the Trent Severn Waterway has been a pastime for visitors for many years. However the waterway is not just for visitors in a boat, you can also visit by land. Many lock stations offer tent camping for visitors or a launch location for a paddling excursion. The Trent Severn Waterway has concrete steps for access at the lower end of Hastings (Lock 18), the upper end of Healey Falls (Lock 16/17), the lower end of Healey Falls (Lock 15). Paddling docks have been installed at the upper and lower sides of Lock 13, the lower side of Lock 10 and the upper end of Percy Reach (Lock 8). There is a cleared hiking trail between Locks 8 and 9 called the ‘Centennial Trail’, where some passengers aboard boats will attempt to beat the vessel on foot to the next lock station.
