Hilly Hundred donates to trail renovation - Bancroft This Week - Ontario, CA

"The Municipality of Hastings Highlands, in partnership with the Bancroft Broken Spokes Cycling Club and a government grant, were able to resurface a four-kilometre section of the Heritage Trail from Bancroft to the Y Road.


This trail is now hard packed and suitable for mountain bikes and cross bikes to cycle. We are very excited about this upgrade and intend to continue the work to resurface the Heritage Trail. The 64-kilometre Heritage Trail runs from Glenn Ross in the south to Lake St. Peter in the north. Trail development is an important part of promoting active healthy lifestyles for cyclists of all ages and abilities. It is hoped that by accessing the trail into Bancroft by bicycle that this will help make a safer bicycle route into Bancroft. The upgraded trail will also encourage visitors to cycle the trail to explore our region."
