Lion's Ring Trail

Plans are for the Ring Trail to circle Elmira linking with the Kissing Bridge Trailway at the north end.  More trail will be constructed  as opportunities arise. Woolwich Township boasts eleven trails totalling more than 80 kilometres. Trail use in the Township includes walking, running, cycling, cross country skiing, and snowmobiling as designated. Check out the Woolwich Trails Guide and watch for the signs on the trail to know which use applies to each trail.

This 12 kilometre walking trail, established by the Elmira Lions Club, provides a fine opportunity to explore the natural history of the Woolwich Reservoir and surrounding area. A sign at the head of the trail on Homer Schwindt's farm, at the north end of Snyder Avenue, portrays the trail route and other pertinent information. The trail crosses private farm lands before continuing on to form a loop around the Woolwich reservoir. The reservoir has a good reputation for attracting waterfowl, especially shorebirds, which can be viewed during migration in spring and fall. Another highlight along the trail is a maple sugar bush characteristic of much of the forest in the northern half of the Region. The Floradale Community Park is at the northernmost extreme of your hike. Here picnic tables are available for a refreshing halfway point meal.
