Welcome to FoRT

Friends of the Rail Trail, or FoRT for short, has been connecting community and rail trail in Haliburton county since 2007. Here's what's coming up next . . .


May 8 - Meet at the end of Howland Junction Rd, off Cty Rd 121 just N of Kinmount, as always - ready to ramble at 11 am. See a derelict flagstop station from the Victoria Railway days, and evidence of the turntable that transferred engines to the I,B&O rail line. Cross the trestle bridge over Kendricks Creek and stop for a moment to glimpse ghostly stone abutments of the I,B&O railway bridge - long gone now.

A Natural Heritage Study of the HCRT (Haliburton County Rail Trail) is taking place this year, with funding from TD Friends of the Environment Fund. Led by environmental consultant Paul Heaven, this study offers community participation in discovering the biodiversity of the HCRT.
