under development since 1995, with the collaboration of the Québec ministry

of transportation as well as numerous regional partners.
When completed, the Route verte will comprise 4,000 kilometres of bikeways

linking the various regions of Québec. A powerful catalyst for the development

of cycling, the Route verte carries on a tradition that has led to development of

the world’s greatest cycling routes.


To engage all Americans in marking the new millennium in ways that would leave

a lasting legacy, President Clinton and First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton created

the White House Millennium Council to organize a number of national millennium

projects. The millennium projects spurred by this effort were guided by the unifying

theme to "Honor the Past - Imagine the Future."

Millennium Trails was a partnership between the White House Millennium Council,

U.S. Department of Transportation and Rails-to-Trails Conservancy in cooperation

with other agencies and organizations. As one of the national millennium projects,

Millennium Trails recognized, promoted and supported trails as a means to preserve

open spaces, interpret history and culture and enhance recreation and tourism.

Under this initiative, more than 2,000 trails across America were be recognized,

enhanced or built. These included hiking trails, bicycle paths, greenways and scenic

byways through rural and urban landscapes and cultural and heritage trails that preserve

and commemorate major events in our nation's history.
