Regional Loops - Extend your Waterfront Trail Adventure
The Watefront Trail is the beginning of many wonderful regional loops created by our community partners--while cycling is the chief trail use, there are some wonderful hiking experiences as well.
Some of our favourites are listed below (east to west):
- Lennox Addington County (Greater Napanee, Loyalist) -- about 2 hours from Toronto and Ottawa and 3 hours from Montreal. (Pictured above)
