Hit the Trails in Peterborough & the Kawarthas

Our link on the Great Trail follows an old railroad corridor that goes straight through the city of Peterborough. It’s a gentle grade and accessible to all abilities. But it’s only the beginning. Within Peterborough and Lakefield are urban trails in park settings, perfect for a casual stroll while out in the countryside. There are hundreds of kilometres to explore.

Please note: Guidance from the provincial Ministry of Health and Peterborough Public Health is evolving quickly in response to COVID-19. Rules and regulations are in place to help protect us all. Remember to read all signage before entering the trail system and practice physical distancing at all times. Non-essential travel is not recommended at this time.

Keeping it Short

Trails are a wonderful way to explore the outdoors and all you have to do is follow the path… or make your own. If you’re in a hurry but need a breath of fresh air, these short routes are for you!

In it for the Long Haul

Do you need a break from the indoors? Looking for more than just a quick jaunt? Then these trails are for you! The world’s longest recreational trail—which runs 23,000 kilometres across Canada—runs right through Peterborough & the Kawarthas on its way to the Pacific coast, previously called the Trans Canada Trail, and now The Great Trail.
