Wilmot Trails Schmidt Woods Trail is now open

Wilmot Trails Schmidt Woods Trail is Now Open!

October 5, 2016: the trail is now open.

Completed in the fall of 2016, this trail consists of approximately 2.0 km of compacted stone dust multi-purpose trail (designed to meet accessibility standards), and approximately 1 km of natural ground hiking within the municipal forest surrounding the Wilmot Recreation Complex. The trail extends from the northwest corner of the WRC at the Nafziger Road entrance to the east end of the property, with a connection to the paved bike lanes on Gingerich Road. View the trail map.

The lands for these trails were generously donated to the Township of Wilmot by the benefactors of the Schmidt Estate as a legacy to the memory of Harold and Enid Schmidt's contributions to Baden and Wilmot Township. Construction of the Schmidt Trails was completed in part with funding received through the CIP 150 program. Read more about Harold and Enid Schmidt and the CIP 150 program.
