Walking along a trail around Thames River May 29, 2010
Overall, this is a great "hiking" trail to to walk along the Thames River. If you like to enjoy the beauty of nature and walking around where more to don't dare to enter, I definitely recommend that you take the time to walk along this area of the River.
There is many opportunities of wildlife pictures, trees/grass and weeds for your liking. If hiking isn't your first choice, I have seen many individuals fishing and swimming in this area.
I think walking from the bridge, to the dam, across the bridge at the dam back to our original location took us a couple of hours. But it was well worth it!
Key things to consider when and if you decide to do this walk, especially the less then ideal "man" made path;
1) Good footwear. Consider rubber boat, waterproof hiking boots or hiking scandals.
2) Long, light pants if you don't want to get small scratches on your legs from the brush and small trees that come across the path.
3) Bug repellant. There are a long of small bugs around that like to bite.
4) Walking stick. Either your own or you can find some broken branches along the path. It just makes it easier with the awkward parts of the path.
5) Water bottle. It gets hot at times and it's nice to have a cool drink.
