Mill Pond Trails


Peaceful and serene, Mill Pond has six kilometres of wilderness trails. Take a hike through the park and stop for a quiet picnic in the sugar bush or at the covered picnic shelter.

Mill Pond has a boat launch (car top only) for those who would like to enjoy a quiet canoe trip. Directions: Mill Pond Conservation Area is on Briton-Houghton Bay road off Highway 15 between Portland and Lombardy.

Once upon a time, many years ago, what is now the Mill Pond Conservation Area at that end of the Houghton-Bay Rd. was settled by the Joseph Jones family, in about 1820.  I have pictures of an ancestrial cousin by the name of Charlie Jones fishing on the family property at Mill Pond.  Family passed down information says that the 4 corners where the Briton-Houghton Bay Rd. and the Old Kingston Highway intersect was known as Jones Corners.  Joseph Jones owned approximately 500 acres of land there.
