Trail Name Length Hiking time Difficulty Description
Mr. Vallee Park 2.8 km(Linear) 45 min – 1 hour Moderate From near the centre of town you can find the very scenic trail leading up to Mr. Vallée Park and a beautiful Anderson Lake. This trail begins at Wawa Creek near the Township Municipal Garage and meanders upwards towards the quiet, beautiful Anderson Lake. There you will find a large picnic table and a small dock. This is a great place for kids to cast a line! Other than the stairs climbing the hill at the start of the trail, it is a fairly easy walk. There are quite a number of stairs, but the top affords a great view of the town! Please be careful with the stairs – unfortunately they need maintenance!
