Head out on the Trans Canada Trail for a hike, ride your bike or go for a ride on your ATV or snow machine. The Trail goes right alongside my property. The trail goes through rolling hills, fields and marshes. The trail is closed to ATV's from Hastings to Peterborough but it is lovely for walking or biking. From Hastings east it is open to all types of use.
