Trans Canada Trail - Northumberland portion


The Northumberland portion of this national trail spans from Hastings southeast to Hoard’s Station (just east of Campbellford) on a rail trail last used by trains in the 1970s.

On your 37km trek you pass marshland, meadows, farmland, and travel alongside the Trent River in many spots.  At Ferris Provincial Park in Campbellford, you’ll thrill at riding over the adjoining Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge (link to https://www.northumberlandtourism.com/en/reviews/suspension-bridge-thrills.aspx) as you deviate off of the rail trail through the town of Campbellford.

There are long shady areas where you just might see deer or ground hog scooting out in front of you.  At Hastings, alongside the Trent River, you’re likely to see baby turtles emerging and tumbling down the embankment into the river.   Kits (fox cubs) have been seen playing in this area, too.

Ontario By Bike held a multi-day group ride on the Trans Canada Trail from Campbellford into Fenelon Falls and mapped it on RideWithGPS from this page:  www.ontariobybike.ca/Juneride2019
