Trent Lakes is a township in the rural, mostly wooded northern section of Peterborough County, Ontario, Canada.The municipality was formed in 1998 as Galway-Cavendish and Harvey Township through an amalgamation of the township of Galway & Cavendish and the township of Harvey.On February 19, 2013, the municipal council passed a bylaw to change the name of the township to the Municipality of Trent Lakes.CommunitiesThe municipality comprises the communities of Buckhorn, Buckhorn Lake Estates, Burleigh Falls, Catchacoma, Crystal Lake, Ewan, Flynns, Fortescue, Kawartha Hideaway, Lakehurst, Mississauga Landing, Mount Irwin, Nogies Creek, Oak Shores Estates, Point Pleasant, Rockcroft and Sugar Bush.GeographyTrent Lakes is home to Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park, which is set around Catchacoma Lake and Mississauga Lake. Three violent summer wind storms have hit this area doing damage to property and forest, one in 1927, then 1995 and in 2006. The area is also a popular cottaging and recreational area.The community is a scenic location where Paleozoic limestone formations yield to the underlying Precambrian bedrock of pink gneiss; as a result, it attracts a large number of summer residents and visitors. The lakes above and below the falls, and even the falls themselves, are studded with numerous pine-covered rocky islands, similar to the Thousand Islands region.HistoryThe area is rich in early First Nations sites, and many First Nations members live in the community year-round or seasonally on some of the islands in Lovesick Lake.
