Let’s explore the Mill Pond Trail in Cambridge, Ontario.
I wasn’t sure what to expect when I started this trail run, but that is always part of the fun.
I stopped briefly to read this sign. The term “walkway” made me think that the trail continued somewhere else.
I looked to my left and saw that there was a similar trail on the other side of the pond, so that is where I decided to go.
This looks more like the main trail.
I really like how this trail has taken me through some interesting terrain. There are portions of it that run alongside suburban neighbourhoods, across woodchips, over dirt and gravel, and through the woods.
The trail came to a rather abrupt end at a small neighbourhood park. All in all, it seemed to be about four kilometers long. I had been running for about twenty minutes at this point when I had to turn around and head back.
I wasn’t sure where I was going here. The trail seemed to continue through a park directly across from the Mill Pond. It wasn’t the route I’d taken but I was sure it would loop up back to where I started.
The trail led me to a side street not too far from where I started this run at the corner of Hespeler and Guelph streets.
It was a nice run and the latest addition to my collection of nature trails.
