Simcoe Walkway, Simcoe Waterfront Trail and the Lynn Valley Trail Professional Review and Guide
"A variety of short trails allow walkers to wander along the Lynn River, which connects several parks in Simcoe. As of January 1, 2001, this tiny town south of Brantford at the junction of highways 3 and 24 has become part of the municipality of Norfolk, which also includes Port Dover. The 8km (5mi) Lynn Valley Trail connects the two areas. The mixed forests contain some Carolinian species, particularly beech, cherry, ash and mulberry.
Many trails pass wildflower meadows containing pink smartweed, scotch thistle, sedge and skunk cabbage. Birders will appreciate the tundra swans, and an abundance of chickadees, blackbirds, blue jays, eastern wood pewees, juncos and mallards that you’re bound to see in the area. This trail guide includes Simcoe Walkway and Simcoe Waterfront Trail, Lynn Valley Trail, Lowland Lane, River Run, Pine Pathway and Grassy Guffy, and Brook Conservation Area."
