Experience walking, wagon and cycling adventures as well as snowmobile, ATV and horseback riding on the Iron Horse Trail!
The Iron Horse Trail is a most remarkable multi-use recreational corridor, taking its name from its former use as a railroad. Because this corridor has been in existence since the beginning of the twentieth century, the ecology of the Trail is relatively untouched.
The Trail runs through mixed wood forest, farmland, crosses streams and rivers, and skirts lakes. The user of the Trail will find a total of eighteen railroad trestles, those marvels of engineering that have stood the test of time.
Watch video of trail.
Please be advised that snowmobiles and ATVs are to keep to designated routes and avoid trespassing on private property.
