The Andy and Helen Spriet Trail is owned by the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC). The NCC owns and manages many properties throughout Norfolk County with the purpose of conserving areas of ecological value.

The trail travels through Carolinian forest and restoration areas that have been planted with the seeds of 100 native plants including grasses, wildflowers, shrubs and trees. The fields are covered in wildflowers throughout the summer and fall.
