Ferris Trail

Situated as part of both Ferris Provincial Park and Trans Canada Trail, the Ferris Trail is 30 km long. The Ferris Trail has two main trails: the Drumlin and the River Gorge. The Drumlin trail is a series of large loops with numerous benches to offer moments to break. The River Gorge trail traverses beside the Trent River from the northern park boundary past Ranney Falls and the Ranney Gorge Suspension Bridge reaches down to the southern park boundary before looping back north. Both trails have some rough sections. Overall the Ferris Trail’s difficulty is intermediate. Photos can be found here. GPS location: 44.29439, -77.79416
