This is a gorgeous stretch of trail between Simcoe and Brant that runs through Waterford ponds. Great place to walk or cycle. Lots of birds and wildlife! There's docks and space to picnic along the ponds.

Beautiful views and quiet settings make this an excellent for one or the whole family. Everything from wooded areas to wide open farm land border these trails.
