Twelve O'Clock Point - Waterfront Trail
Quinte West is the hub of a number of natural and manmade waterways. In 1993, Quinte West began the process of regeneration by reclaiming its riverfront. It ripped up parking spaces that backed onto the shoreline and created a lovely landscaped and lit Trail. There is a gap in the Trail between Quinte West and Belleville. However the Trail continues south through Prince Edward County along HWY 33.
Asphalt and gravel (often ungraded) along Canal Road. Paved shoulders along the Loyalist Parkway. Trail stops at Centennial Park since trail connections into Belleville do not exist. The only route is old HWY 2-unsuitable due to high traffic speed and volume and the absence of shoulders. Trail resumes 12 km east in Belleville. A second route for the Trail goes south from Quinte West along HWY 33 through Prince Edward County. Parking: Hanna Park Bayshore Park Downtown Quinte West Centennial Park.
