Trent-Severn Waterway National Historic Site of Canada

Take the 100km Centennial Challenge

A Celebration of Trails along the Trent-Severn Waterway

2011 is a special year, the 100th birthday of the world’s first national park service. Parks Canada has provided a century of fun and unique opportunities for Canadians to connect with their heritage. The Trent-Severn Waterway, and the trails that cluster around it, also tell a story of connection, linking people and places within the landscape. Come celebrate with Parks Canada by exploring your Waterway and reconnecting with your community! You might even win a prize!
