City of Quinte West
Trenton is at the heart of the amalgamated city of Quinte West, which includes the townships of Sidney and Murray, and the Village of Frankford. Located along the beautiful Bay of Quinte, Quinte West is the southern gateway to the well-known Trent-Severn Waterway and it is the ideal spot for the angler, boater or vacationer who just wants to get away from it all. The downtown area is highlighted by two marinas, boat launches, fishing piers and a variety of shopping and entertainment experiences.
Head to the marina area and watch boats embark on their journey up the Trent-Severn Waterway. You can get a great seat at the Fraser Park Marina, which is also one of the stops along Trenton’s stretch of the Waterfront Trail, a beautiful walking/cycling trail that joins Trenton with Hamilton along Lake Ontario. Take a leisurely stroll through the streets — you’ll marvel at the architectural beauty of local buildings, dating back to the turn of the 20th century.
If fishing is your idea of relaxing, then drop a line in one of the hottest fishing spots in Ontario. Each May Trenton hosts Walleye World Fishing Weekend, a live release fishing competition.
