Hiking on The Grand River Trail this Fall. – Great Things to do in Kitchener Waterloo

Fall is a wonderful time of year and one of the best ways to spend some time outdoors is hiking along the Grand River Trial. This morning I took my dog “Shiva” out for an hour long walk and she dragged me through some of the prettiest scenery along the grand river. The colors have changes and some of the views were just wonderful. I got some much needed exercise after a great weekend and Shiva got out and did her thing of sniffing, engaging with a couple of dogs we met along the way and enjoying the fresh air.

The Grand River Trail is a 18 kilometre (11 mile) trail that follows the Grand River through lush Carolinian Forest with spectacular river overlooks en route. The Trail runs from Paris to Cambridge and is a great place to spend an afternoon.
