Head through the park beside the river to the trail through the woods, and follow the pretty, mostly wooded riverside trail. About 1 km after going under the 401, you will come to a road which appears to be the end of the trail, but go left over the road bridge, and the trail continues on your right beside the bridge. Go on to Hespeler, ending with a short industrial area leading to Guelph Avenue. Go right, and at the river there is a small park with a view of the mill pond above the dam.
