Welcome to the Lang Hastings Trail!

Welcome to the Lang Hastings Trail!  This beautiful greenway trail, that runs between Peterborough and Hastings in the wonderful Kawartha region, is 33 km (one way) of outdoor fun.

You can run, hike, cycle, cross country ski, walk with your furry friend, and even snowmobile – with a permit. Come out and enjoy all that nature has to offer.

Vision for the Trail

As part of the Trans Canada Trail, the longest trail build in Canada, the ‘Lang Hastings Trail’ will be sought out by many, and admired by local communities as a unique and healthy lifestyle choice and natural heritage wonder to take pride in.

Mandate of the Peterborough-Hastings Trans Canada Trail Association

The Peterborough-Hastings Trans Canada Trail Association is an incorporated, non-profit charity dedicated to the operation, maintenance and promotion of the ‘Lang Hastings Trail,’ a 33 kilometer trail developed on the abandoned Canadian National Railway rail bed between Peterborough, Ontario and the Trent River at Hastings, Ontario. The property on which the trail has been developed is leased by the Association from the Province of Ontario and The Cowan Family Foundation.

Land Acknowledgement

We respectfully acknowledge the Lang Hastings Trail is located on the traditional territory of the Michi Saagig Peoples. These are Treaty 20 (1818) and William’s Treaty (1923) lands.

We encourage everyone to educate themselves on the details of these documents and the influence of First Nations in Canada’s history.

The Board of Peterborough-Hastings Trans Canada Trail Association recognizes these contributions and commits to actions which demonstrate respect for the environment and, in keeping with First Nation tradition, reflect the security of the next seven generations.


Founding Trail Volunteer, Barry Diceman, invites you to come explore and enjoy the Lang Hastings Trail in Peterborough County.
