This granular surface trail forms an 880 metre loop through the O’Neill Nature Preserve, a large standing woodlot on the outskirts of Chatham.
The trail was built as a result of collaboration between a number of local organizations and individuals, including the Rotary Club of Chatham, Carolinian Canada Coalition, the Municipality of Chatham-Kent, and nearby residents.
An interpretative trail with a difference, the Rotary Eco-Trail aims to educate users about the ecology of the region. Interpretative signs along the trail will provide tools to help users of all ages make a difference in the environment where they live, work, and play.
Directions: The trail can be accessed through Thornhill Park, at 114 Thornhill Crescent, and Midwood Oxley Park, at 223 Oxley Drive, in Chatham
