Rotary Greenway Trail


This former rail line was developed through the fundraising efforts of the Rotary Club of Peterborough.

The trail is 7 km of paved trail (3m wide) with various unpaved side trails from Ashburnham Drive to Nassau Mills Road at Trent University and 8.5 km of Limestone Screenings from Trent University's Environmental Science Parking Lot to Lakefield. It provides a link from Trent University to the downtown corridor and beyond.

The main trail journeys along the eastern bank of the Otonabee River, through a number of parks and ecosystems which are home to a variety of wildlife. Interpretive signs describe the ecology, flora, fauna and history of the area. A new section entitled The Rotary Greenway: Scenic River Road Trail was officially opened on July 5 2000, spanning the distance from Trent University to Lakefield
