The Jackson Creek Kiwanis Trail is a 4.5 kilometer multi-use recreational trail that extends from Jackson Park in the City of Peterborough to just west of Ackison Road in Selwyn Township.

This recreational trail provides opportunities for walking, running, dog walking and cycling in the summer months, and cross-country skiing in the winter, with nature viewing enjoyed throughout the seasons.

There is much to see along the trail as you leave Jackson Park and proceed west. You will pass through upland forested areas, large open agricultural areas, lowlands, wooded valley slopes, and a large wetland before reaching the end at Ackison Road. Each one of these areas contains its own unique and interesting habitat and associated plants and wildlife.

The main feature along the entire length of the trail, disappearing occasionally behind the forest, is Jackson Creek. The creek is largely responsible for the abundance of diverse plant and animal life, providing for optimum viewing opportunities along the entire length of the Jackson Creek Kiwanis Trail. Enjoy your time on the trail!
