Hastings County (Ontario) Trail

March 12, 2008 | 1 comment

This portion of the TCT runs 64km from Hungerford in the east to Hoard’s Station in the west. Primarily flat, this section of trail is suitable for cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, horseback riding, snowshoeing and, when winter is over (it will end eventually), hiking/walking and cycling. For more information on the Hastings County Trail, please visit our trail locator.

You can also drop by the Northumberland Tourism office in Cobourg and visit Cori Arthur, who sent us the following info:

Just a reminder that we have in our office a free topo map of the Northumberland portion of the Trans Canada Trail from Hastings to Hoard’s Station. It’s a lovely trek along the abandoned rail line and I’ve made various notes of marshland, farm fields, beaver dams that you’ll see along the way. Give us a call at 1-866-401-3278 or 1-905-372-3329 x2257.


  • The list of activities for the Hastings section of the trail is not quite complete.

    ATVers and snowmobilers use this section of the Trans Canada. I have walked most of it and find the high vehicle use in some sections negatively affects the surface of the trail and is a danger to non-motorized users. The pollution from exhaust can mar walks. In some spots, the use of large gravel stones makes biking awkward.
