Posted On Sunday June 26, 2022

Members of the media and the public are invited to attend a ribbon cutting ceremony and photo opportunity to celebrate improvements to the Verona Trailhead of the Frontenac K&P Trail and the start of the summer trail season. 

 

What:            Verona Trailhead Ribbon Cutting

When:           Tuesday, June 28, 2022, at 11:00 am 

Where:          Verona Trailhead, Corner of Road 38 and Bellrock Road, Verona

 

The Verona Trailhead improvements will increase safety and accessibility on the trail. Included in the project are improved road crossings, additional trail edge protection, and new trail rest areas with benches. 

The work was made possible with funds from the Community, Culture, and Recreation stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP).

The K&P Trail is a 180 km multiuse recreational rail trail that connects downtown Kingston to the Town of Renfrew where it intersects with the Ottawa Valley Recreational Trail. Frontenac County owns and operates the 90 km stretch referred to as the "Frontenac K&P Trail" from km 21 where the City of Kingston borders with the Township of South Frontenac, to km 110 near Wilbur where the Township of North Frontenac borders Lanark County.

The Frontenac K&P Trail connects several villages and hamlets across three townships in Frontenac County with infrastructure for cycling, walking, hiking, horseback riding, ATV use, snowmobiling, and other recreational activities. The trail intersects with the Tay-Havelock Trail in Central Frontenac and the Cataraqui Trail in South Frontenac. Together the three trails form the Trans Canada Trail route through Frontenac County.
