You'll find a pastoral paradise along this section of the Waterfront Trail while cycling under the canopy of mature trees. The Trail itself is wonderfully quiet and remote. Nawautin Shores Nature Sanctuary is a tribute to the late Bob Marshall's vision and commitment to creating a residential development with a restored wetland that is publicly accessible.
Along Wicklow Beach Rd there is a stretch of stone beach where people often swim and picnic. A short (1.5km) distance to the north you'll find the Hamlet of Grafton with its antiques, heritage homes and Barnum House Museum. Asphalt -on country roads. Care should be taken since the speed limit for vehicles is 80 kph. Stock up on supplies since there are no en-route amenities. However, the Hamlet of Grafton is a short distance to the north on Station Rd. and a great place to visit.
Lots of stone beaches along this stretch of Trail. Portable toilets available at Haldimand Boat Launch Facility and a public washroom at the Municipal Administration Office in the Hamlet of Grafton (10836 County Road # 2). Parking: Wicklow Beach Boat Launch- Wicklow Beach Road (County Road # 31).
