The Millennium Trail is as an important but underused feature of Prince Edward County. The purpose of the project was to make the trail more suitable for walkers, joggers, cyclists, ATV’s and snowmobiles. While the Trail is 49km long, extending from Carrying Place to Picton, the project improved 11 km in and around Wellington, from Danforth Road to Highway 33 east of the village.  The project has the support of the Prince Edward County Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture.
 
 
Improvements include re-surfacing the Trail, clearing brush, establishing a parking lot, kiosk, and washroom at West Street, improved signage, linked trails and annual maintenance. Rotary and community volunteers worked on the improvements along with contractors supplying material and specialized equipment.
 
The project was undertaken in three stages, east from Belleville Street east to Loyalist Parkway, west from Consecon Street to Danforth Road, then from Consecon Street to Belleville Street. The first stage was officially opened January 17, 2013 and stage two was finished by September 2013 and stage 3 resurfacing was completed in July 2015.
 
The trail from Consecon Street to Belleville Street features a kiosk with interpretive signs, a parking lot and a public toilet. The interpretive signs give the history of the railroad, industry serviced by railroad and the First Nations who lived in this area.  The kiosk was completed in summer 2016. 
 
    
 
Rotary will conduct fundraising events to continue to upgrade the trail, and donations from citizens and businesses are very important to its progress.
