The revitalization of the Millennium Trail reached another milestone with the installation of kilometre markers.

The kilometre markers are part of the revitalization of the trail, which includes resurfacing and grading, new directional and safety signage, and staging areas. The kilometre markers were made possible by sponsors and provincial tourism funding.

“The generous individuals, businesses, and community organizations that are recognized on these kilometre markers really provided the early momentum for the trail revitalization,” said Patrick Maloney, Chair, PEC Trails Committee. “They saw the potential of the old rail line becoming a vital link connecting our towns, villages, and hamlets. We are happy to celebrate their contributions.”

The Millennium Trail Rehabilitation Ad-Hoc Committee, which includes representatives from the municipality and the PEC Trails Committee, is facilitating the work with Barry Davidson serving as the project lead.

“There is much work to do, but this feels like we are in the home stretch,” Davidson said. “This work had made the trail more accessible and promotes an active lifestyle for both County residents and visitors alike.”

“The Prince Edward County (PEC) Trails Committee, municipal staff, and many volunteers have done an incredible job moving this project forward,” said Steve Ferguson, Mayor, County of Prince Edward. “I have heard a lot of positive feedback on the improvements, and we are excited that many more will be able to access this amenity.”

The 46-kilometre multi-use trail stretches from Carrying Place at County Road 64 to the Lake Street terminus in Picton, passing near Consecon, Wellington, and Bloomfield. For more information about the Millennium Trail Upgrade Project, visit the County website or email info@pectrails.ca.
