Mostly shaded trail - well kept up. We had a fabulous day exploring the rail trail to Port Dover. About 15 km from Waterford to the beach!

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.
