The Victoria Recreation Corridor is a rail trail that stretches from Lindsay, Ontario to Kinmount Ontario. The trail is used year-round for hiking, horseback riding, cycling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. The trail follows the former CN rail line which was constructed beginning in 1874.
The trail takes you from Lindsay along Sturgeon Lake to Fenelon Falls. It travels through Fenelon Falls and along Cameron Lake. At the North End of Cameron lake the trail follows the Burnt River north eventually leading to Kinmount. The trail continues from here into Haliburton County. Come, follow the trail and enjoy the scenic splendor and natural beauty Victoria County has to offer.
The trail can be reached from Victoria Street, Lindsay. If you are driving up from the south (Hwy 35), you will enter Lindsay on County Road 15. When you get to Kent Street, which is the main street, turn left (west). After you have passed most of the downtown you will come to Victoria Street, where you should turn right (north). The railroad tracks used to go up this street, so it is quite wide. After about 1 kilometre you will see where the tracks curved to the right and left Victoria Street. This is the start of the trail.
