You can come to the Waterford Heritage Trail from access points inside of Waterford as well as on trails from Delhi, Port Dover, Simcoe, Brantford and beyond. The magnetic attraction of the trail is our lofty Black Bridge which overlooks panoramic views of the Waterford Ponds. A sunset viewed from our safe overlooks is something to behold!
Access from Waterford
We suggest parking at the west end of Nichol St. in the shadow of the old Co-op silos. The trail is paved here allowing strollers, wheelchairs, bikers, trykers, walkers, runners, in-line skaters, dog walkers and just plain walkers ... to enjoy our gorgeous trail.
The Bridge and the Rail Lands Trail to Waterford
While enjoying the lookouts from the bridge, you can see the ongoing work on the paved trail to downtown Waterford, the newly installed spanning bridge to the west and the planned bridge to the east. These join our trail to Brantford and beyond. On our trail, you can you can see Carolinian plant and tree species which are unique in Canada, canoe-kayak launches and fishing access points.
