Trails provide an open and safe space for recreation, education, and physical activity. Throughout the Otonabee Region watershed, and within the municipalities of the County of Peterborough and City of Peterborough, we are fortunate to have extensive trail systems for hiking and walking.
ATVs and Motorized Off-road Vehicles are not permitted on our trails or properties.
Enjoy the many facilities at nearby Beavermead Park and the Trans Canada Trail on the southeast shore of Little Lake. You can enjoy many linked trails in and around the City of Peterborough, including the Rotary Greenway Trail that starts just outside Beavermead Campground and connects to the rest of the trail systems in Peterborough.
