Millennium Trail Upgrade Project
A 46 km multi-use trail across Prince Edward County from Carrying Place through Consecon, Wellington & Bloomfield to Picton
To make the entire 46 km Millennium Trail from Carrying Place to Picton suitable, safe and attractive for cyclists, pedestrians and other permitted users of this multi use trail.
Through the hard work of the Rotary Club of Wellington, the 11 km portion of the trail from Danforth Road to Hwy 33 east of Wellington has already been upgraded.
Our vision is to upgrade the remaining 35 km of trail and resurface it to enable more people to use it.
LATEST NEWS & INFORMATION
Upgrades to the Millennium Trail through the Slab Creek and Hubbs Creek provincially significant wetlands will start on Tuesday, November 12. This phase of upgrades will occur where the trail crosses Station Road in Hillier and continue east to Danforth Road.
- The elevation of the trail will be raised with gravel through the Slabb Creek and Hubb’s Creek wetland areas in order to prevent seasonal flooding of the trail.
- To improve the surface of the trail for the benefit of all users, construction crews will also be grading, applying 6” of limestone screenings, and rolling the surface of the trail.
- The work to upgrade the 4.5 km stretch of trail is expected to continue for approximately two weeks.
This section of the trail will be closed during the upgrade work and will be marked appropriately.

With hunters and off-road enthusiasts taking advantage of the fall riding season, the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) is partnering with the Ontario Federation of ATV Clubs (OFATV) to remind all off-roaders to do their part to stay safe.
Just a few loose ends to tidy up and the Freqently Asked Questions (with answers!) to be added. Take a look around; feedback welcomed.
