Pourquoi choisir un sentier au Vankleek Hill, Ontario ?

Vankleek Hill is a community in Champlain township in eastern Ontario, situated South of Hawkesbury on Highway 34. This agricultural based community became a thriving community in the 1890s and still retains many of the buildings and structures which were present then. This is reflected in the fact that Vankleek Hill is the Gingerbread (the wood carvings on the eaves of one's roof) capital of Ontario. It was named after Simeon Vankleek, a United Empire Loyalist, who settled here near the end of the 18th century. Relatives report that he left his farm in New York, in fear of soldiers from the Revolutionary War. He hopped on his horse and rode as far as he could until he got to what was to be Vankleek Hill, where the horse dropped dead. The town has a population of 1,996 and the local newspaper is The Review. The name of the local field hockey team is the "Vankleek Hill Cougars." Vankleek Hill also has a soccer league, the Champlain Soccer League, and takes part in the Glengarry Soccer League. There is also a competitive field hockey league for girls and women called the Hawkesbury/Champlain Girls Hockey Association. Vankleek Hill is currently home to a community garden, which has two acres of organically-grown produce being harvested by residents within a few steps from Main Street. The town has one set of traffic lights, 9-hole golf course, golf driving range, parks, arena and a fair ground. In recent years, the town has become the home of Beau's All Natural Brewing Company, an award-winning microbrewery that supplies pubs, restaurants, and LCBOs throughout Eastern Ontario.
