55 km Linear rail trail • between Lindsay and Kinmount. The old Victoria Railway line heads north to the rail’s end in Haliburton Village. Due to jurisdictional boundaries, this has become two separate rail trails named according to the respective historic counties of Victoria and Haliburton.
The Victoria Rail Trail Corridor runs 55 km north from Lindsay through Fenelon Falls to Kinmount. The County boundary is just North of Kinmount. There it becomes the HCRT – Haliburton County Rail Trail running another 34 km into the Village of Haliburton. See TAG Zone 8 for the HCRT.
Please review note on ATV use of these two trails.
Fenelon Falls is a town situated on the Trent Severn Waterway, with a railway history. The Victoria Rail Trail follows the water’s edge from parkland just off the main business section. A novelty for many visitors would be a cruise from here through the locks to Bobcaygeon. Fenelon, as it’s known locally is a busy cottage service town in the summer months with shops and a variety of eateries – this one serves as a hub for community walking and bike outings.
Kinmount displays a lot of community history directly trailside. Austin Sawmill Heritage Park, is a wonderful place to stop for a stroll and a picnic. Note the stone sculpture tribute to a short-lived Icelandic settlement, and the restored railway station which houses a working model railroad of the Victoria Rail Line between here and Haliburton.
