Settler's Route Trail System
Located in: Pikawkanagan ~ Killaloe~ Wilno ~ Foymount
The Settler’s Route Trail System is a route of abandoned railbeds, gravel roads and small trails through the countryside of some of the most historic parts of Renfrew County.
The best thing about this trail:
Although it doesn’t have a lot to offer in views, Settler’s Route is the perfect route for functionality. It connects two very popular trail systems, the Pakkotinna and the Opeongo. It gets you to the B trail from Golden Lake to Wilno, It provides an ease of travel, lots of history and that’s why we love Settler’s!
