Albion Hills Conservation Authority
Daniel Scott from IMBA writes, "Students will come away with a firm understanding of the fundamentals of trail design for both hard surface and naturally surfaced trails of various user types. A working knowledge of the design process from the planning phase to ground proofing trail alignments will be both discussed and experienced with examples and a field exercise which will include using field measurement equipment and flagging a trail alignment for construction."

NATURAL/ HISTORIC SITES
When you’re entering the region from any direction the noticeable feature that differentiates Peterborough from other Cities or Counties in Ontario is the distinct rolling hills. These hills, while beautiful when full with fall foliage, have a unique history behind them. When the last ice age was receding, it left behind large pockets of sediment, which it picked up while proceeding to grow and freeze everything in its path. These pockets of sediment are what create the rolling hill effect you see now. The leftover hills are called Drumlins and Peterborough is home to one of the largest Drumlin fields in Canada. The reason is unknown, however when travelling along the trails or the roads, makes sure you keep an eye out for the next hill and think about how it really was created.
