Carlton Trail

The historical Carlton Trail cuts through our municipality, extending from the south east corner on through to the North West corner.   This route was travelled mainly by the use of oxen drawn Red River Carts, and ruts cut by the wheels of these large two wheeled carts can still be viewed northeast of Paradise Hill.  These ruts are somewhat unique in that in most other areas of the trail, the marks have been long ago hidden by cultivation and regrowth.
