City of Peterborough – Beavermead Park
Sponsored by: Clif Bar & Company
Hike, walk, bike or cross-country ski on the site of a former railbed, which was active from 1858 to 1988. This trail links parkland, farmland, the natural environment and five communities, including Lindsay, home to one of Canada’s most sustainable schools; Omemee, the childhood home of Neil Young, where you can visit the Youngtown Rock and Roll Museum; Little Lake on the Otonabee River; and Jackson Park, one of Peterborough’s largest parks.
Peruse outdoor sculptures or stop for a snack in downtown Peterborough, just off the trail.
