Welcome to the brand new Lennox & Addington County Forest Trails. Be immersed in 51 hectares (127 acres) of rugged beauty of the Canadian Shield's landscape of tall pines and granite. 

When exploring The Pines, you will experience 10 kilometres of logging roads and single-track trails designed with bermed curves and elevations that incorporate the natural terrain of the forest.

Mountain bike riders, please watch for hikers and note that a small section of trail is shared by motorized traffic. Stay on marked trails and respect the area's wild ecosystems during your visit.
