Sightseeing

A beautiful trail that links the entire County from west to east with multiple entry/ exit access points along the way, conveniently taking visitors to the doorstep of many attractions like wineries, craft breweries, farms and townships in PEC. Popular use and activities on the trail include: walking, running, hiking, cycling, ATV/ 4 wheelers. The MT runs 55km one-way from Consecon (west PEC) to Picton (east PEC). You'll find 1 km markers along the trail from W to E. It's pretty much dead-flat so a leisurely ride on a bicycle for novices. (No hills or climbing up Mt. Ventoux like in the Pyrenees, France :))
