Hub Trail

Celebrate Canada Day, July 1st by taking part in the 9th Annual John Rowswell Hub Trail Festival.

This event happens rain or shine.

Start at any one of the passport stations: At each station you will receive a stamp on your passport for the section of trail you’ve completed. You can go to one station or visit them all. Keep your eyes open for fun activities, great give-a-ways and more.
