Mapping a Northumberland adventure

NORTHUMBERLAND - Northumberland is a place for adventure, and now there's a map to show you exactly where to find it.

The recently released Northumberland County Outdoor Adventure Map highlights the limitless ways residents and visitors alike can have fun and experience nature throughout the year. A brainchild of Northumberland Tourism, the map covers the entire county and shows where nature and sporting enthusiasts can take part in activities like fishing, birding and cycling, to name a few. It features a full map of Northumberland as well as summaries and contact information for a bevy of destinations. Many of these, including the Spartan Ravine Walkway, the Ferris Provincial Park and the Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Area, are fit for a number of different activities like skiing, cycling and more.

"Northumberland is such an oasis," said Eileen Lum, manager of tourism for Northumberland Tourism. "We're surrounded by forests, beaches, and hills. It's no wonder that visitors have come to enjoy our natural heritage. We want to make sure that outdoor experience is accessible to our visitors."

The goal of the map is to attract more of those visitors and to keep them coming back throughout all the seasons of the year. read more...
