The Trail stretches from the Regional Municipality of Durham (near Uxbridge, Ontario) in the west to the County of Peterborough (City of Peterborough) in the east; 40 kms of the trail is located on abandoned rail line, resulting in it being relatively flat and accessible for the majority of users. It is 3 metres wide of packed limestone with plenty of signage. The Trail is a four-season trail with plenty of historic and cultural heritage linking five communities, parkland, farmland and the natural environment by and providing opportunities for nature appreciation and healthy active living for hiking, walking, cycling, horseback riding, cross country skiing and snowmobiling.
