Map 10 Kitchener (4.4 km hike, return on Walter Bean Grand River Trail by bicycle)
We had time for only a short hike today. Between Woolner Trail and Natchez Woods in Kitchener, the Grand Valley Trail runs parallel to a section of the Walter Bean Grand River Trail, along the edge of a high bank beside the river. After the recent rains, the mosquitoes were out in full force as we threaded our way along a narrow path through meadows and bush. We hardly dared stop to take a photograph. In contrast the Walter Bean Trail is a wide, stone dust multi-use trail. On bikes we were able to out-run the bugs.
