Verona Trailhead Work to Begin

Improvement work on the K&P Trail is scheduled to begin from Monday, November 15, at the Verona trailhead. The project plans include levelling, grading, and paving the parking area; installing benches and picnic tables; and the addition of barrier-free access to the trail from the parking area. The work is scheduled to take about three weeks but crews will return in the spring to pave the parking lot. The Verona trailhead parking area will be inaccessible during construction, so users are invited to park at and access the trail from the Hartington, Godfrey, or White Lake Road trailheads. This work will not only improve trail access and safety but also strengthen the overall user experience, further positioning the K&P Trail as a valuable public recreation asset and emerging tourism attraction in the region.

“Frontenac County has spent the past decade developing the Frontenac K&P Trail into a world-class facility," says Richard Allen, Manager of Economic Development, Frontenac County. "These improvements will ensure that trail users of all ages and abilities can safely access and enjoy our wonderful trail.”

This work is just the first phase of a program funded through the Community, Culture, and Recreation stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP). The four-year, $828,000 funding partnership among Infrastructure Canada, the Province of Ontario, and The County of Frontenac was announced in June.
