Greater Napanee Waterfront Trail
Greater Napanee has an abundance of scenic and beautiful waterfront to offer visitors. Its downtown core is situated on the beautiful Napanee River, further south its shores hug the Bay of Quinte and Hay Bay renowned for its Wall-eye fishing. This is Loyalist country and the prosperity of the past can be seen in the many heritage buildings that have been so carefully preserved.
There are two routes for the Waterfront Trail in Napanee: Deseronto to Napanee Route-Trail (not signed) connects to Deseronto, goes through the Town of Napanee and follows County Rd 8 south to the Loyalist Parkway (HWY 33). A scenic secondary route loops around Hay Bay's rugged shoreline-on County Rd 9 and South Shore Rd. Loyalist Parkway Route- Trail connects to Prince Edward County via the Glenora ferry which you board at Aldophstown and continues along the Loyalist Parkway into Loyalist (Bath). This route is signed.
County Rd 2 is Dundas St. in Napanee, a 2-lane wide road with some on-street parking and sidewalks on both sides of the street. Centre Street (County Rd. 8) is a 2-lane wide paved road with some on-street parking and sidewalks on both sides of the street and a 2-lane bridge crossing the Napanee River. Hay Bay Loops on County Rd 9 and on South Shore Rd are on-road with gravel shoulders. The speed limit is 80 kph, so caution is required. Loyalist Parkway (HWY 33) through Napanee is signed.
