My name is Tom Worsley and I am an avid hiker and outdoors enthusiast living in the city of kawartha lakes. For years now I have been searching for cool new places to explore and go hiking. What I have discovered so far is that the options are endless in our great province of Ontario. We have the Trans Canada Trail running right thru our back yard along with the Ganaraska hiking traiI, the Oak Ridges hiking trail and not to far away is the Bruce trail. I started hiking when I was a teenager over 30 years ago and I have only scratched the surface when it comes to hiking trails in Ontario. My first trek was to Ken Reid Conservation. When I was a boy I would cross highway 35 south of the town of Cameron walk thru my uncles field until I came to the railway tracks. Back then the train still used the line between Lindsay and Haliburton which is now the Kawartha Rail Trail. I would follow this south till I came to the railway bridge that crossed maclarens creek then into what is now Ken Reid Conservation. This area had a huge impact on me as a boy, and as an adult now living in the town of Lindsay I still visit the hiking trails at Ken Reid on a regular basis when I don’t feel like driving to a more distant hiking location. Some of my other favourite hiking trails include Pigeon River Conservation Area , Fleetwood Creek Conservation Area and further from home the world famous Algonquin Park Hiking Trails . My future plans include visiting some of the Bruce trail locations between Hamilton and Owen Sound. I have visited some hiking trails on the Bruce in the past and what I have seen so far is nothing short of breathtaking. Waterfalls, Huge cliffs, caves and views as far as the eyes can see. In addition to the Bruce hiking trails I have noticed that the city of Toronto and surrounding area has many urban hiking trails right inside the city including the Rouge River hiking trail system which I have been to in the past and look forward to visiting again in the near future. I will continue to add more content as I visit and explore new hiking trail locations. Until then happy hiking.
