The FWR Dickson Wilderness Area is a large natural area that includes two small lakes, wetlands, tall-grass prairie, forests and willow-dogwood thickets. It provides habitat for a variety of birds.

It is on Brant-Waterloo Road, west of Spragues Road (Waterloo Regional Road 75).

There is a parking lot with an information sign.

The 4.8 kilometre figure-8 trail has short or long loop options. It is easy to moderate in difficulty and has some hilly terrain with steps. There’s a boardwalk through the wetlands and narrow paths through heavy plant growth.
