Join us on May 6, 2023 to celebrate 10 great years with our Volunteers and Donors

Members of the Peterborough-Hastings Trans Canada Trail Steering Committee meet at Elmhirst’s Resort on November 27, 2012.

We are delighted to announce that volunteers and donors are coming together on Saturday, May 6th, 2023, at 11:00 am to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of the Lang Hastings Trail.  There’s still time to RSVP!

With the support of Trans Canada Trail (TCT), this celebration is being held to recognize the valuable contributions of volunteers and donors, to improve trail sections through essential seasonal maintenance activities and volunteer training.

Each year, volunteers work hundreds of hours to ensure that all users can safely access the Lang Hastings Trail and reap the benefits of outdoor recreation in the county.  The trail would not be the tremendous national asset that it is without the dedication and commitment of tens of thousands of volunteers across the nation, who play a critical role in the development, care, and maintenance of the Trans Canada Trail.

This on-trail event will take place between 11 am – 1 pm, between Heritage Line and Nelson Road/Base Line at the shelter gazebo, erected on the site of the original Grand Trunk Railway Keene Station, 25’ east of the Indian River Bridge.

This project is funded in part by Trans Canada Trail to enhance our local section of Canada’s national trail. Trans Canada Trail awarded Trail Care Grants to 192 trail groups to prepare the Trail for the 2023 spring and summer seasons.  Trail Care is generously supported by Hydro One’s Energizing Life Community Fund and Columbia Sportswear.


Le Grand Portage

On Sunday, October 2nd, Devin Crago and friends will be portaging a canoe from Birdsalls through to Hastings Village along the trail.  40 teams will take turns portaging a canoe between Toronto and Montréal, each completing a 13 km section for a total distance of 700km, to support Multiple Sclerosis research. If you happen to be out on the trail this weekend and see any canoes, be sure to say hello! Here’s a link to some information on Le Grand Portage and how you can get involved.
