trail to the past

Meaford, Ontario – September 20, 2017The Meaford Museum is inviting history lovers and outdoor enthusiasts to attend a special unveiling of the new historical signage that has been installed at Trout Hollow Trail.

The ceremony will begin at 10:00am on Saturday, September 30 at Riverside Hall (157707 7th Line, Meaford). It will be followed by an interpretive walk along the trail led by local writer and researcher Robert Burcher. At 1:30 pm the Meaford Museum will be hosting an open house with cake and refreshments.

Trout Hollow trail follows alongside Meaford’s Bighead river, which is said to be one of the best Trout fishing rivers in all of Ontario. It leads you to the remains of old sawmills, where John Muir once worked, as well as the remains of the old Power dam and house which was used to power Meaford in the early 1900’s.

“We’re so lucky to have such a strong local connection to world renowned naturalist John Muir, and this new signage does a great job of highlighting and enhancing the history of Meaford’s Trout Hollow trail.” Said Jen Simon from the Meaford Museum.

Parking at Riverside is limited and will be on a first come first serve basis. RSVP’s are not required.
