Lion's Loop Trail


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. Trail brochure and maps for a self-guided tour of historic sites are available by visiting the Tourist Information Booth or the Municipality of West Perth Clerk’s Office on St. David Street or visit our website at www.westperth.com Experience the pleasant blend of history and nature’s solitude in Mitchell.
