Lang Hasting Trail Maintenance Fundraiser

Since the spring of 2014, the Peterborough-Hastings Trans Canada Trail Association has held a fundraising dinner to support the operation, maintenance and management of the Lang Hastings Trail .  Due to Covid-19 and the state of emergency in the Province of Ontario, the May 9, 2020 event was cancelled.  

The cancellation of this annual fundraising event that financially supports such maintenance activities such as weed control, brushing, culvert and trail bed repairs, etc., and management expenses such as the annual lease, insurance and property tax must be raised through the generous donation of trail users and supporters.

As part of the Trans Canada Trail or "The Great Trail", the longest trail build in Canada, the ‘Lang-Hastings Trail’ is sought out by many, and admired by local communities as a unique and healthy lifestyle choice and natural heritage wonder to take pride in.
The mandate of the Peterborough-Hastings Trans Canada Trail Association is an incorporated, non-profit organization dedicated to the operation, maintenance and promotion of the ‘Lang-Hastings Trail,’ a 33 kilometer trail developed on the abandoned Canadian National Railway rail bed between Peterborough, Ontario and the Trent River at Hastings, Ontario.  The property on which the trail has been developed is leased by the Association from the Province of Ontario.

The Peterborough-Hastings Trans Canada Trail Association works with local authorities and raises the necessary funds to operate and preserve the Peterborough to Hastings section of the Trans Canada Trail. The trail will provide a long lasting entity, allowing visitors to come and enjoy healthy lifestyle choices while taking in the natural heritage that the area has to offer.

The Association is a community-based committee with representatives from interested communitiy members and local user groups. It was incorporated on August 10, 2012.  A ‘Board Members Manual ’ was adopted by the Association’s Board of Directors at its November 15, 2012 meeting, which provides a framework for the governance and administration of the Association.
