Take a hike while you are visiting Lambton Heritage Museum! There is no better way to explore the unique oak savanna habitat around the main museum and historic buildings. The Woodland Heritage Trail is a 1km loop through the forest around the museum. It should take approximately 20 minutes to walk the trail. This opportunity is included as part of your regular museum admission fee.

 

The trail is accessible year round and in the winter, snowshoes are available for rent. There are a variety of sizes for adults and children (who have to be over 60 pounds to use the equipment).

 

The trail is named in honour of Ontario’s Woodland Indigenous people, who inhabited the area from 1000-1650 and fished, hunted, and worked flint in this area.
