Hanlon Creek Trail


Beginning at Stone Road Mall, the Hanlon Creek Trail takes little time to part ways with the bustling shoppers. The path almost immediately slopes down into University Village Park, crosses Ironwood Drive, and enters into Hanlon Creek Park. The excursion up to that point, however, is preliminary to the 100-year-old eastern hemlock trees found in the Preservation Park.



The hemlocks scratch the surface of the trail’s perpetually inspirational plant and animal life. Contributing to the effect is the eastern wood pewee, a bird that spends four warm months in the north before migrating to Costa Rica for the winter. Upon finishing this 3.1 km loop, those weary of further outdoors activities can retreat to the comforts of the mall. This information is found in more detail in Katherine Jacob’s book, “Grand River Country Trails”.
