Beachcomb on the long pebble beach for driftwood and fossils, swim off the big flat limestone ledges, it’s a quiet beautiful place for a picnic – but remember to leave only footprints behind! An excellent place to watch a sunset. During spring and fall migration, it is one of the finest birding areas in Canada. Point Petre is an important stopover for mallard, black duck, blue- and green-winged teal, wood duck, hooded merganser, lesser and greater scaup, bufflehead and common merganser. See birding info. Favourite hangout from Rick Mayhew and Gerry Foster ☞ Point Petre, the point of Petre. Local tips: There are no signs to the water. Walk or drive down one of the lanes that lines the main road and at the end is the shore. Not all of the lanes are suitable for cars. Bring a picnic lunch and drinks (and a lawnchair), as there are no restaurants nearby. If you get there early in the a.m., walk across the road to see the bird banding (in season). The currents can be dangerous, there are sometimes undertows. Be careful. Bring a bag to collect your garbage, there are no waste disposal bins. The name is pronounced “Peter”, not “Petree”. […]

Walk, run or bike on the Millennium Trail – a former railway that’s been converted into a multipurpose trail. You’ll pass by farmers fields, forests and creeks, not to mention marshes that are teeming with wildlife like frogs, turtles, beavers, and birds. A great spot to take the dog for a long walk or just to get out and enjoy nature for a while. Status in 2017 The Trail is a work in progress but only the 11 km stretch in and around Wellington from Danforth Rd. east to Cty. Rd. 2 is good for cycling. The stretch from there east to Picton is rough but passable. The stretch to the west from Danforth becomes impassable, at times under water and muddy, and rocky. The plan is to have the entire trail completed in two years time. The trail system serves as a County wide recreational facility for local residents, visitors and to provide access for farm vehicles by adjacent land owners. The trail corridor is 15 meters in width and 49 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 […]
