We enjoyed a small part of the trail alongside the ponds and old railway bridge. Very scenic and peaceful. Perfect for walks and bike rides. The ponds look like a great place to fish or canoe / kayak.

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.

As a geocacher, I spend a lot of time on trails. This is one of the best maintained trails in the area. There are always lots of walkers, and cyclists.

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.
