The West Perth Thames Nature Trail (WPTNT) meanders along the Thames River from the north end of town along the millpond & comes up to Highway 8. Crossing at the lights, the trail resumes south of Parmalat, coming up & crossing over the railway tracks. It is wheelchair accessible to the tracks. From here it is a rough hiking trail following along the river, passing under the Frank St. bridge, leading into the woodlands & over to the developing wetlands. Features of the trail include wetlands, uplands, & aquatic areas. The Lion’s Loop Trail meanders along the west side of the millpond, passing the WPTNT “Aquatic Educational Station” & through the park where you can visit an animal farm and enjoy a picnic. Crossing the dam will lead you onto the West Perth Thames Nature Trail.
