Adventures to try on your e-bike
The following destinations have google map links, and a brief on the itinerary.
Prince Eddy’s Brewing + Lunch Box
Easily accessible from the Millenium Trail, and also in close biking vicinity to some great dinner spots in Picton, this medium-large brewery has a beer for everyone. If you visit during the mid-day and decide to grab take out either from a lucky food truck there or the Lunch Box next door, take it down to the pin listed on the map beside this text for a great view of the harbor.
The Millennium Trail
Originally the Millennium Trail was the Prince Edward County Railway (PECR) – renamed the Central Ontario Railway (COR) in 1882. The track ran almost due west out of Picton towards the western shore of the Prince Edward County Peninsula. It turned northwest at Wellington and then due north at Hillier before turning northwest again at Consecon to loop around the western end of the Bay of Quinte and then northeast for the short remaining distance to Trenton.
You will love using it as a bike highway, as it is very convenient to use to access all the businesses within its vicinity. If your destination is not assisted by the Millennium trail the county does have numerous back roads that are typically quiet from heavy traffic. Be sure to look both ways before crossing, and if you choose to bike on the shoulder of the larger highways such as Loyalist Parkway be mindful of loose gravel and road debris.
