9:00 am Guided walk of The Nith Forest.
After your gourmet breakfast, experience the Nith Forest. Let us guide you on a path less travelled exploring untamed natural areas along the little-known Nith River. Tributary of the Grand River Watershed, the Nith’s part of a designated Canadian Heritage River, home to some of South Ontario’s largest forests & early Canadian culture. Experience hiking rare Carolinian Forest in hidden valleys that feel lost in time with unknown and untouched beauty. Meandering through rural South Central Ontario, the Nith’s Forests feature folklore of abandoned early riverside settlements plus amazing nature with stunning sights unknown even to locals. Picturesque old iron bridges & herds of white-tailed deer cross the river, while Red-tailed Hawks cry out above.
Our immersive interpretative forest experience includes animal tracking plus exploring habitat from animal to historic, uncovering old Trapper’s Lean-to’s & a pioneer’s cabin foundation lost in the forest. Complete with a campfire building for a warm lunch featuring our delicious Maple Chilli, our Nith hike is an authentic explorer’s experience. (4 hours with approx. 6 km hike plus interpretative experiences & campfire lunch included)
