Linking two communities with one trailShare Tweet
The Township of Tyendinaga and the Municipality of Tweed have begun work on the South Hastings Trail, a 50-kilometre route that will link their two community recreation centres together! This Community Cheer project was submitted by the Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance in collaboration with a variety of local organizations.
Once complete, the trail will be more accessible and allow for many people to enjoy; it’s also one of the biggest tourism opportunities for the county! The system will have access to various roads, the Quinte Conservation land, Trans Canada Trail and link to the existing Eastern Ontario Trails Alliance network – which spans from the Bay of Quinte to Algonquin Park.
Over 100 guests attended the official cheque presentation ceremony, which included members of the community and local associations. The celebrations comprised of an afternoon of food, music and good cheer in recognition of all the hard work the entire community put into cheering on this project and for the work that will be put into seeing its completion.
Grab your gear and get ready to get out there to enjoy Canada’s natural heritage!
