Woolwich Reservoir

woolwichThis man-made lake has to be one of the least-visited properties in the Grand River Conservation Authority fold. The main entrance, off Reid Woods Drive north of Elmira, is easy to miss, and many people do.

You can stand on the dam and watch seagulls float in the greenish lake to the gentle drone of falling water. For real seclusion, take the lesser-known northern entrance off Florapine Road and follow the narrow car path to the locked gate. From there, you’ll have to hike through a shady stand of pines to reach the dam. With just you and the crows, it feels a little bit like walking through creepy Sleepy Hollow.

Thanks to the Elora Lions Club, there are plenty of trails around the reservoir to keep you busy.

Where: Reid Woods Drive, Woolwich
