Hike Russ’ Creek Trail 5km south through an area of natural and scientific interest which was a farming community in the mid 1800s now home to a remnant tallgrass prairie ecosystem containing provincially rare wildflowers, shrubs, trees and grasses as well as the animals and insects that depend on these species for survival. Where the trail forks .5km after crossing Dunbar Rd, keep to your left. The trail passes under a hydro corridor and ends across from the Day Rd sign at Cty Rd 22.

Directions: From Exit 474 on Hwy 401, take Cty Rd 45 north approximately 15 km to County Rd 29. Right turn at the first stop sign and a left turn at the next stop sign still keeps you on Cty Rd 29. Watch for Covert Hill Road on your right and head south approximately 1km to Russ’ Creek Rd (road allowance).
