East of Chaffey's Lock. Petersent
Choose a section of the long-distance Cataraqui Trail to get in a nice off-road run in the Kingston area! This multi-use path runs for 104 km between Smiths Falls and Strathcona and is a mainly gravel/dirt surface. The closest access points to Kingston are ~27 km north, in the area between Perth Road Village, Sydenham, and Harrowsmith. The first 42 km are fairly flat, combination of woods and farmland. Km 42-68 pass through a neck of the Canadian Shield called Frontenac Neck and are a bit more rugged. The eastern 30 km are flat farmland. There are some sections that are more remote.
Add-Ons: Connect to the K&P Trail in Harrowsmith.
