Brighton railway crossing with a trainBe sure to leave lots of time to visit Presqu'ile Provincial Park-one of nature's outstanding gifts. Go swimming, camping, windsurfing, diving, fishing or take in the nature programs and visit the oldest operating lighthouse on the north shore of Lake Ontario. For refreshments stop by Dougalls on the Bay located on the Trail at Harbour St. or travel a little way north to Gosport (along Ontario St. or Cedar) for some freshly caught fish at the fisheries.

  • Asphalt (on-road) and stonedust (off-road)
  • County Road 64 has paved shoulders in Brighton. As it enters into Quinte West, between the Murray Canal and Gardenville Road, there are no shoulders and some rough road conditions
  • Few service and amenities along this stretch of Trail. Stock up on refreshments at Presqu'ile Park, Dougalls on the Bay or in Gosport
  • Presqu'ile Park is a must see with its magnificent sand dunes, wetlands and a lighthouse.  Stop at Brighton's constructed wetland (HWY 64 east of Prince Edward) and learn how this wetland contributes to waste water treatment
