Hike Along the Ausable River
This all-season trail winds through the picturesque Ausable River Valley between MacNaughton Park in Exeter and Morrison Dam Conservation Area on Morrison Line. The river, trees, birds and wildlife make this an ideal setting for a nature trail. The trail passes through towering hardwood and pine forests, skirts along the Ausable River and gives a bird’s eye view of the river valley at several lookouts. It’s also one of the best places to see the area’s unique white squirrels.

The trail is part of the South Huron Trail network.

In Exeter, from Hwy. #4 (Main Street), turn east at Hill Street to MacNaughton Park; or, from Cty. Rd. #83, turn south on Morrison Line (entrance is across from Morrison Dam Conservation Area)
