THE SEATON TRAIL  SOUTHERN LOOP

THE SEATON TRAIL IS LOCATED ALONG THE WEST DUFFINS CREEK IN PICKERING.  THE TRAIL GOT ITS NAME FROM THE PLANNED COMMUNITY OF SEATON WHICH WAS ENVISIONED IN THE 1970'S TO ACCOMPANY THE AIRPORT PLANNED IN THE AREA.  THE TRAIL FOLLOWS HISTORIC HUNTING AND FISHING ROUTES ALONG THE CREEK USED FOR CENTURIES BY ABORIGINAL PEOPLE.  IN PIONEER TIMES THE CREEK AND VALLEY BECAME THE SITE OF SEVERAL WATER POWERED MILLS.  A FORMER GRIST MILL STILL EXISTS AT WHITEVALE.

Distance: 11 km
