FANSHAWE LAKE TRAIL NOTICE:
Sections of the trail may be impassable when water levels in the river and Fanshawe Reservoir are high, in which case you will be asked to double back. Click here to check the Wye Creek trail crossing.
Trails for Hikers Only
There are three loop trails for hikers only: the Tamarack Trail (blue blazes, 1.5 km), Lookout Trail (yellow blazes, 4 km) and Meadows Trail (green blazes, 3 km). These trails are all located close to the campground. For your safety and to protect trail habitat, please always stay on the marked trails.
There are two low water crossings on the Lake Trail, one over Wye Creek and one just south of the Thorndale bridge on the west side of the Thames River. When the reservoir and river are high, these sections of the trail may be impassable, in which case you will be asked to double back. See current flows and water levels for the Wye Creek crossing on line. Trail conditions are also posted at the trailhead in the day use area (#1 on the map).
