The Doug Wardell Nature Trail , located on Concession 3 (Derby) in Georgian Bluffs, Grey County was opened in May 2018 in memory of Doug Wardell, the inaugural member of the Outdoors Adventures Group who built and manage this trail. The trail is on property owned by the Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy.

Much of the trail is easily walkable & encompasses primarily a softwood forest environment which is dis­sected by Springer’s Creek, a tributary to the upper Sydenham River. Two bridge crossings are to be constructed over the creek as part of the trail system.
