The Kawarthas region offers a wide variety of hiking trails with varying degrees of difficulty. We’ve put together a list of just some of the local trails that are well worth a drive.
Stony Lake Trails
We have to include this one since part of the 10 kilometre trail network can be accessed from right here at Viamede Resort! Enjoy scenic views of the lake, limestone cliffs, outcrops of Canadian Shield, and abundant opportunities to view wildlife.
Bobcaygeon Wilderness Park
This 8 acre forested property offers over a kilometre of safe, accessible trails winding through mature forest cover.
Robert Johnston EcoForest Trails
There are four trails totaling around six kilometres, passing through a mix of forest of wetlands.
Jackson Creek Kiwanis Trail
This is a 4.2 kilometre multi-use recreational trail that extends from Jackson Park in the City of Peterborough to just west of Ackison Road in Selwyn Township.
Eels Creek to High Falls
This is a 5 kilometre hike with the trail head located a short drive from Viamede Resort. There are some marshy areas and creek crossings to traverse, but well worth the effort for scenic lookouts and to see High Falls.
Fleetwood Creek Natural Area
This conservation area west of Millbrook offers 3 trail loops totalling over 8 kilometres and includes an observation platform.
