Millennium Trail

The trail system serves as a County wide recreational facility for local residents, visitors and to provide access for farm vehicles by adjacent land owners. The trail corridor is 15 meters in width and 49 kilometers in length and a total land area of 73.5 hectares.

The trail goes from Carrying Place and winds through the County to Picton with various vistas and natural landscapes. The Millennium Trail is an important local off-road connection that links residents and communities along the entire 49km (30 mile) corridor length. Although, predominantly rural, the corridor passes through several urban areas that are characterized by adjacent residents, street crossings and connections to other walkway systems.

The County acquired the abandoned rail line from the Canadian National Railway in 1997 for the purposes of developing a trail system through the County.
