This section of the Cataraqui Trail is part of the Trans Canada Trail. The Cataraqui Trail is an exciting new addition to the trail system of Eastern Ontario. It is a four season trail for hikers, cyclists, equestrians, snowmobilers, and cross-country skiers as main users, and follows the former Canadian National Railway line from Strathcona near Napanee to Smiths Falls, a distance of 104 km.
The route is on railroad grade with a road bed of varying material and sizes as surface (standardizing the surface for all users is a high priority). The trail passes through or near numerous small communities with ever changing surroundings, and has many delightful sections with no evidence of human activity other than the railway right-of-way.
