One trail that is particularly interesting is the Hastings Heritage Trail. It is a four-seasons, multi-use recreational trail that stretches along an old railway line through Hastings County. The 156-km trail, which spans from Glen Ross in Quinte West to Lake St. Peter Provincial Park in the north, is perfect for adventurers of all kinds, from hikers and cyclists to horseback riders and ATV operators.
The trail sits within 30,000 acres of conservation lands that feature some of the best sights in Ontario, including breathtaking waterfalls, wetlands, historical buildings, and relics of ghost towns like Brinklow. Several access points and parking areas are also available along the length of the trail.
In a press conference on Thursday, the premier stated that while the next few weeks will continue to see businesses and gatherings shuttered, Ontarians shouldn't lose hope for a normal July and August.
"My goal is to have the most normal July and August possible," he states. "Obviously, that won't mean large sporting events or concerts."
"But, if we manage the next few weeks properly, I believe that we can have things in a very good place this summer."
On top of this, the premier also states that they working on getting everyone vaccinated as quickly as possible, in order to reduce cases and lift restrictions.
"If we get the supply, we will work our backs off to have a two-dose summer, instead of a one-dose summer."
Justin Trudeau threw some shade at the Toronto Maple Leafs on Thursday morning, stating that their chances of winning the Stanley Cup this year are "unthinkable."
In an interview with CP24, the prime minister jokingly mocked Toronto fans, saying that he admires their ability to always be able to cling onto hope for their team.
"As a Habs fan, I'm kind of in admiration of Toronto fans who continue to cling to hopes every year, year in and year out, it's impressive to see," Trudeau told CP24. "If the unthinkable does happen and we're all wonderfully surprised to see the Leafs in the Stanley Cup finals, I know there will be ways to make sure that everyone gets to watch."
The leader also revealed where the federal government stands on letting the Toronto team do playoffs on home soil this year.
"I can tell you that one of the things that will make that decision easier if it comes, is for everyone to get vaccinated and for the cases to be driven down in those coming weeks," he stated. "More than 75% of Canadians need to get vaccinated, that's how we get back to normal, which I'm not going to say normal includes the Leafs winning the Stanley Cup, but it does mean we're moving in the right direction."
