There are many ways you can explore the Lang Hastings trail. Here are some suggestions:
- Walking, running, and hiking: Whether you are doing long-distance training or enjoying a short stroll, the Lang Hastings Trail is ideal for walking, running, and hiking. The trail is suitable for more robust strollers. You will find benches and a shaded gazebo along the way where you can rest.
- Cycling: Hybrid, touring, or just peddling around, the Lang Hastings Trail is great for any bike with a wider tire. Its surface is relatively flat and made of crushed limestone. There is a bike repair stand east of the Indian River bridge.
- Geocaching: Geocaching is a fun, low-key outdoor activity, suitable for solo adventurers and families alike. Use your GPS device to locate the coordinates of the “treasures”, called caches, that are placed along the trail. Even better – you can make your own geocaches for others to find.
- Horseback riding: If you enjoy horseback riding, then the Lang Hastings Trail is certainly a great option. The trail is suitable for horses. Please help maintain the trail by cleaning up after your horse.
- Skiing and snowshoeing: Even when there is snow on the ground, the Lang Hastings Trail is always there for you. Get outdoors on the trail for cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. The trail is groomed during the winter for snowmobiling as part of a larger regional route that accesses adjacent private properties. Non-snowmobilers must stay on the Lang Hastings Trail due to insurance coverage.
- Snowmobiling: The Lang Hastings Trail is available for snowmobilers during the winter months. You require a valid OFSC permit and must obey the rules of the trail at all time.
