The Millennium Trail System includes trails developed and maintained by the City of Woodstock, Woodstock Rotary Club, Woodstock Lions Club and Youth Start. The trails follow the banks of the Thames River, through mixed hardwood and softwood forests, marshland and some retired agricultural areas, which are slated for reforestation. Hikers may spot the occasional deer, beaver, blue heron and other interesting wildlife. Black berries may be ripe for the picking. Though the trails are not connected at this time, they are in close proximity to each other. Although sections of the trail are under restoration, they can be used. There are porta-potties located at each trailhead.
