once we found the sheddon entrance .. that's the tricky part. we discovered a fantastic trail full of beautiful scenery and semi challenging Touraine. it had been a wet spring so some spots were mud filled but our journey from there to part way past Lyle Rd was great. can't wait to explore more next time. The only downside is that being a straight run you have to fight the urge to want to see what's around the next corner because what you walked in...you have to walk back from.

Nice, easy & fun for beginners
The only downfall is that it was really difficult to find

Done first 10.3 km from the beggining. There was a huge sunflower field at the corner from Lyle Rd., which must be beautiful during summer. Passing through the horse farm, and a lot of ups and downs along the river. Fairly fun to go through variety of scenery and hills.

It was an awesome hike once we found the trail. The online maps were fairly off and there was huge gap between the blazes at the beginning (Port Stanley). We spent about an hour and a half just looking for the starting point (we later found that there are trail maps in Mackie's). Otherwise, we hiked the first 10km and it was great!

Overgrown throughout. Worried for our dogs with respect to ticks.

Nice trail has some overgrown spots through it and needs some major clean-up in sections as parts of the trail are under construction or closed off completely
