The Victoria Railway connected Kinmount with Lindsay and Haliburton. The line was absorbed by Canadian National Railways as the Haliburton subdivision. Passenger service ceased in 1960, freight service ended in 1978, and the line was abandoned in 1981.
It was converted to the 55-km Victoria Rail Trail used year-round for hiking, horseback riding, cycling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling.
Find the sign to the trail near the train station and heritage park.
