If nature is your jam, the BoQ is the place for you. With plenty of conservation areas to explore, you’ll find out quickly that all who wander are not lost…but pack a lunch just in case.
Waterfront Trail – Partly paved, partly off-road, you can easily bike, rollerblade, or walk this beautiful trail that runs along the water’s edge through the heart of the Bay of Quinte.
H.R. Frink Centre – Well-maintained trails and boardwalks lead you across a variety of natural habitats, including a silver maple swamp and lush forest. Walk-through access available every day.
Sager Conservation Area – A short 1km trail starts at the base of the hill and climbs steeply to a scenic 30ft tall lookout tower, offering spectacular panoramic views of the Trent River valley and surrounding area. There’s a total of 97 steps on the trail plus another 48 steps on the tower – a bit of a hike but the view is worth it.
Presqu’ile Provincial Park – It’s nearly impossible to write about this park without mentioning the 2.5km sandy beach. When the sun hits the water just right, the turquoise reflection off the water makes it look like a slice of the Caribbean in south east Ontario.
Stop by the Trenton Delicatessen for a packed picnic lunch and don’t forget the pickles.
