Slab Creek

Slab Creek is spectacular at this time of year, and the interpretive sign really adds to the experience. Don’t miss it!

The kiosk on Station Road in Hillier. Still to come are the planting of a suitable shade tree, interior imagery such as area historical and cultural information, a wetlands map, and a plaque celebrating all the donors who helped fund the Trail and make it what it is today.

Add in a picnic table, bike repair stand, and a ‘garden’ which the PEC Horticultural Society will build and the ‘station name’ sign and our volunteers get some rest before they move on to the next scheduled major project – the Salem Road kiosk in Consecon.

10000 Steps

The Millennium Trail was popular for those who took part in the tenth annual ride/walk/run/whatever fund-raiser for PEC Hospice. Shown above at the Picton end of the trail, Dave Smith and friends – 2-legged and 4-legged.

Hillier update

The partially completed kiosk at Hillier. Thank you to our dedicated team of volunteers.

Work is on-going. The washroom is in place at this site. What a sense of accomplishment as we continue to improve the Trail.

There are always volunteer opportunities. If you would like to help, just contact us.

Giant Hogweed

Wild Parsnip

There are lots of interesting things to see along the trail. Giant Hogweed and Wild Parsnip aren’t interesting. They’re highly dangerous. Leave them alone.
