Borden Cr Trail - Tillsonburg

Borden Cr Trail

Borden Crescent Trail – At the south end of Participark the trail goes up on to Baldwin St. and goes a short distance, west on Baldwin St.. The trail continues south off Baldwin St. to Border Cres. and John Pound Rd. It then follows the south side of John Pound Rd. to Mabee’s Sideroad and connects with Highway #3. There is a small secondary trail on land owned by the Tripp family at the beginning of the trail. This area is more challenging to traverse than most trails in the system.

Carroll Trail – This trail is full of beautiful vistas and has several bridges to cross, hence the name the Bridges at Tillsonburg Golf Course. This trail is unique as it interfaces with a golf course and portions of the trail sections are shared with the golfers. There is an opportunity to see fish, birds, otters, deer and smaller wildlife as well as some significant Carolinian trees; even a major railroad trestle from the 1880’s. There are several well placed benches along the way to get a rest and enjoy the unique views. The trail can be accessed by following Simcoe Street to Old Vienna Road or from Highway 19 South, follow the signs to the Participark.
