The description is wrong or will confuse people. I'm a local, and live in London, Ontario and walk this trail dozens of times per year. It's not NEAR London, as the description says; it is IN London. It's NOT a "forest" setting, and there are no forests nearby. The trail winds through several park areas, and along areas that do have lots of trees - but there's no "forest". The trail follows mostly along the Thames River, through both residential areas and parks. The indicator of the start point is actually downtown London! The pathway is also paved, and includes joggers, rollerbladers and cyclists as well as walkers. My favourite part is to start from Greenway Park on the other side of the river, and walk north to Gibbons Park, almost to the University of Western Ontario.
