The Loyalist Parkway follows the course of Loyalist settlement, which commenced in 1784, following the American Revolution. As a living monument to the Loyalist settlers, it presents a rich source of information for those with an interest in heritage tourism, Canadian history, early Canadian architecture, or genealogy for those following their United Empire Loyalist roots. As an alternate route between Trenton and Kingston, it offers a wide choice of accommodation, sightseeing and recreation for the whole family. A one metre wide paved shoulder has been provided for cyclists along its length. There are over 40 listed archaeological sites and at least 125 notable heritage buildings adjacent to the Parkway.
