A national trail to be enjoyed is the Trans Canada Trail. The trail takes you along an abandoned dirt railway line (1" stone leads up to Bailey Bridges) and is perfect for those who prefer a nice, flat ride on a mountain bike or hybrid. You'll enjoy journeying alongside the Trent River, farm and wetlands, and have a chance to talk to a few farmers along the way.
In Hastings and in Campbellford, consider an overnight stay, take a meal break at an assortment of restaurants, cycle alongside the Trent-Severn Waterway and even watch some of the locks at work. Thrill by traversing the Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge, wind your way through tree-lined Ferris Park, talk to a few Jersey cows, and when at Hoards Station enjoy a picturesque view of Hoards River. It's here, on weekends, that you can make a reservation at Chubby's Restaurant, a former cheese factory, for a home-cooked buffet-style meal.
It's important to note that when in Hastings, the swing bridge at the west end of the village is swung open for Trent-Severn Waterway boat traffic from April to November making that portion of the trail unusable. Use River Road, Front Street West and the main bridge in Hastings as an alternate.
