White’s Junction Trail follows a former CN railway line that runs from Palmerston to the south of Harriston in the Town of Minto. The development of this trail is due to the dedication of local residents who formed the Palmerston Trail Association (PTA), an incorporated non-profit organization. The trail corridor as it exists today begins at Inkerman Street to the north of Main Street. Once a short section south to Main Street is completed, a direct and visible connection to the downtown area will be provided. In addition to nearby shopping opportunities, Lions Park and the Palmerston Railway Heritage Museum Station are within walking distance. Just beyond Palmerston heading into the rural area, the trail divides at the Junction providing a loop back into Palmerston. Lands in the area are predominantly used for field crops, interspersed with woodlots, bush and wetlands. While you are enjoying the trail, you may notice two original trestle bridges and reproduction railway signs installed on trees along the trail.
