This trail might be the easiest in the area for persons with mobility impairments (wheelchairs, etc.). It is very convenient to (it's in the middle of Goderich) and there's lots of parking. This trail is good for introducing people to tree identification and nature - there is a large variety of tree species along the trail and many of them have identifying signs. On hot spring or summer days this trail is a nice one, because most of the trail is shaded and there are no hilly or rugged areas. The 'forest' the trail runs through is mostly relatively young, have been planted (in the reforested sections) or naturally sprouted in old fields. There are (perhaps) 10 or 20 acres of mature forest near the east (north) parking area. In summary, this is an easy, appealing trail that runs through a good variety of forest habitats, and is great for learning about trees and nature or just enjoying nature. The trail is very clear, well marked, and is suitable for everyone, especially the very young and very senior.
