King's Highway 30 - www.OntHighways.com

Highway 30 runs from Highway 2 in Brighton northerly to Highway 7 at Havelock via Campbellford.  Highway 30's major purpose as part of the Ontario Highway network was to connect the rural community of Campbellford to the rest of the provincial highway network.  Aside from the connection to Campbellford, Highway 30 was fairly impractical as a through route between Lake Ontario and Highway 7.  Campbellford is a very nice, rural community, nestled within the scenic hills of Northumberland County, and makes for a beautiful summer or fall drive.  Highway 30 was entirely decommissioned on January 1st, 1998, and is now known as Northumberland Road 30 and Peterborough Road 30.
