The Centennial Trail is a hiking trail that traverses the Boreal Shield in the Whiteshell Provincial Park. This is a gorgeous section of the Trans Canada Trail, offering stunning views and a true wilderness experience. The trail was conceived by Vern “Skink” Dutton and further developed by the Scouts and Girl Guides of Canada in honour of Manitoba’s 100th anniversary of becoming a province. The trail cuts through pre-Cambrian shield country following high granite ridges and low areas of deep boggy boreal forest.

The Centennial Trail continues to be maintained by a collective of volunteers, the Centennial Trail Association.
