Autumn Trails

…one of my favourite things to do on a sunny Saturday afternoon.

This is the Mill Race Trail between the village of St. Jacobs and the dam along the Three Bridges Road. It is part of the Trans Canada Trail.

Gone Fishing

The owners of this horse, buggy, and tackle box were fishing along the banks of the Conestoga River.

Dam at Three Bridges Road

Conestoga River, Three Bridges Road

This is one of my favourite spots in the entire region. Three Bridges Road runs between Lobsinger Line near St. Jacobs Farmers’ Market to the Listowel Road north of Hawkesville. It is a scenic rural route in the heart of Mennonite country. (map) The one lane bridge over the Conestoga River at this dam is closed if the water levels are high. (the road is Twp Rd 32 and 21 on the Google map)

Conestoga and Grand Rivers

Confluence of the Conestoga and Grand Rivers

The confluence of these two rivers is just outside the town of Conestogo. The Grand River is the larger river in the foreground. Once the leaves on the trees are fully opened, it is difficult to see this view from the road. The confluence of the Grand and Speed Rivers along the Linear Trail in Cambridge is more accessible to the public. The other Waterloo Region river, the Nith River meets the Grand at Paris, Ontario.

Here is a map of the location on Sawmill Rd.
