Centennial Trail


The Centennial Trail is a hiking trail that traverses the Boreal Shield in 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. Trail users should look for rock cairns for way-finding in sections where few trees.

The trail cuts through Pre-Cambrian Shield country following high granite ridges and low areas of deep boggy boreal forest. There are difficult sections with steep rock slopes.
