If you have not yet discovered the splendor and beauty of our trail system, we hope you will make time to join us for hiking or cross–country skiing. Over 15 km of trails available for both walking and cross–country skiing. See “Nordic Ski Club” for membership details.
The Chardin Trail features a former gravel pit that is slowly being rehabilitated as native plants take hold in the arid landscape. To assist in this process, and to create a buffer from the sound and sight of Highway 6, trees have been planted in the gravel pit and adjacent fields that were formerly used for cattle grazing. Tree planting is ongoing with trees donated by the Green Legacy Project, operated by the County of Wellington.
Also of note on the trail are benches built and donated by the wood working classes at John F. Ross high school, and a meditative space that was build with the help of a St. James co-op student.
