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 happening in 2019 . . .

Sunday Rambles / Stanhope Heritage Cycling Tour / Multiple Tart Rides

Every weekend in April and May we ramble! Come rain or shine, blizzard or bugs - it's all fun in the company of Friends! Go to Page > Sunday Rambles to see a quick list of locations and lunches.

Sunday July 21, 2019 is the annual Stanhope Heritage Cycling Tour - an easy 10 km loop on quiet backroads followed by a picnic beside the rapids. Begins 10 am at Buttermilk Falls. 

Mark you calendar and join us for a Tart Ride - a sociable bicycle ride down the rail trail to the bakeshop. These leave at 9:30 am from Rails End, 23 York St Haliburton Village every third Thursday, and every second Saturday June thru' September. The guided ride is free, but bring cash to purchase your choice of yummy stuff from The Little Tart Bakeshop in the Hamet of Donald.

Please support our 100% volunteer group by becoming a member, attending an event, or following us on Facebook.
