Welcome to a very special trail project in Canada!


Big Ben captured the hearts of millions of his fans world-wide. To honour his legacy, the Big Ben Memorial Trail Initiative was established by Gayda Errett in 2005.

Volunteers and ‘moral’ Supporters along with ‘financial’ Donators have supported the idea to develop a wilderness trail in one of Lanark County’s community forests. Big Ben’s home place was in Perth, Ontario.

The Initiative, after 2 years of scouting several community forests, chose the Lavant Forest located in Lanark Highlands Township west and north of the Village of Lanark.

When the County of Lanark approved the trail ‘In Principle’, scouting for a parking area and trailhead routing commenced.

The parking area has been completed with thanks to local contractor, Crain Construction Ltd. Scouting for a trailhead routing from the parking area to connect with the main forestry road was determined and tagged to commence preliminary trail work.

For more information, please view the web pages pertaining to the project ‘moving forward’ to develop the first wilderness trail in Lanark County that accommodates horses [not all wilderness trails in North America accommodate horses].

We take this opportunity to thank our Corporate Sponsor for donating our website and providing excellent technical support.
