Awesome hiking trail, mostly over open granite, with some more difficult sections.
A little history... In 1970, a group of Scouters headed up by Vern "Skink" Dutton discussed the idea of creating a trail as a way of celebrating Manitoba's Centennial. As a result the Centennial Trail became a reality.
This trail travels through some of the most beautiful area in the Whiteshell and is marked by a series of cairns or inukshuks. The cairns are piles of rock used by the Inuit people to serve as directional markers to guide those who followed. There is also Trans Canada Trail signage along the way, occasionally sparse.
