Day 14 - Kingston to Toronto (265 km)

Take the time to visit Fort Henry National Historic Site (admission not included) near Kingston. The flash of scarlet uniforms, the beating of the drums and the sudden crack of musket fire echoing off the limestone battlements send visitors reeling back in time. A living museum of military life, Fort Henry was built between 1832 and 1834 to repel an American invasion that never came. The fort, once the largest military establishment in Upper Canada, now offers visitors a glimpse of the soldier's life of those days, through guided tours, soldier's parades and drills. The highlight and most colourful feature is the internationally renowned Fort Henry Guard: a precision trained unit of Canadian university students performing daily 19th century infantry drills. Stop in the city of Peterborough, which boasts the worlds highest lift locks, literally lifting pleasure crafts, along with the water they float in, 20 metres (65 feet) straight up. Visit the Peterborough Lift Lock Visitor Centre (admission not included), and view the world's highest hydraulic lift lock, and slides and films about the Trent- Severn Waterway. You will also see a working model, and experience the sights and sounds of Lift Lock construction at the turn of the century. Drop off your hire car Toronto Downtown.
