[Coordinates: 43.158002. -80.338443]



This 3.2-km return trail starts at the end of Kramers Way which is a dead-end road that begins at Oak Park Road, south of Highway 403. It is generally considered a moderately challenging route due to a few hills along the way. It takes an average of one hour to complete.


From Kramers Way, follow the S.C. Johnson Trail for about 700 m and at the gate-post with the Blue Heron sign and the GVTA sign, the trail goes down the hill for about 300 m and turns right onto the trails. Do not continue all the way down the hill. The trail continues on to the Grand River and meets the big oak tree and a stone fireplace. The hike can be made longer by going up or down by the river.


Interesting note: some of the trees in this area are the same as in South Carolina.
