In 2016, Viamede Resort partnered with the Kawartha Land Trust to expand the trail network that runs through and around the property.
The 9 kilometres of trails are arranged into 3 major loops – the blue trails (3.5 km), yellow (2km), and red (3.5km), and are open to hikers, cross country skiiers, snowshoers, dogs and people.
Using a mix of land owned by Viamede Resort, Kawartha Land Trust, and various private land owners, the trails include Canadian Shield, limestone formations (The Chute), wetlands and a beaver dam.
Disc Golf Course
The Peterborough Disc Golf Club built and maintains a challenging disc golf course on the Viamede property running through forest trails. Read more about the course here.
