Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance
The trails offer a variety of interesting features for the day tripper. Wandering from north to south and east to west the land goes through an array of changes as the granite shield of the north runs into the limestone base of the old Ontario Lake bed to the south.
In the north, the geology is very very old, the worn remnants of mountain ranges from long ago. Some of this rock is 2.5 Billion years old. In the south, if one takes the time to look at the limestone, they might see fossils of animals that lived in the now gone lake 160 million years ago.
One will also find many old and new bridges that have been used for many years and which were used by the trains that travelled along the old railway tracks. There is an inumberable amount of wildlife to be cherished on and around the trail as well. Birdwatching is a common activity that those who use the trails partake in.
