The Millennium Trail system serves as a County-wide recreational facility for local residents and visitors. It also provides access for farm vehicles by adjacent land owners. The trail corridor is 8 metres in width and 46 kilometers in length and a total land area of 73.5 hectares. The trail starts in 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 46-kilometre corridor. 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.
The trail is accessible at several locations throughout The County with specific hiking points in Picton, Wellington, Bloomfield and Consecon.
The Friends of the Millennium Trail are volunteers working to restore and improve the trail.
