Awesome 1/2 day trip self-guided floating trip on the Grand River from picturesque town of Paris, floating down river to Brant Conservation Area.
This is a relaxing section of the Grand River, with dashes of small swifts to keep your interest piqued. You can view Great Blue Herons, Ospreys, Mallard ducks, turtles and perhaps white-tailed deer along the riverbank with an occasional Bald Eagle. Stop and explore rare Carolinian forest lining the banks of the Grand. Experience the Grand as First Nations people saw it hundreds of years ago and as the first European settlers viewed it when they came here 350 years ago.
In this section of the river, you can take time to experience one of the many cold springs feeding into the river. If you approach quietly, you might spot a beaver or a muskrat as you float past Whiteman’s Creek. The trip ends in Brant Conservation Area by Brantford. As you reach the Conservation Area the river forms a 3 km long lake that offers great fishing and water activities. You land at Brant Conservation Area, one of the largest natural areas in Southern Ontario, with hundreds of hectares of Conservation area with forest and grasslands. Enjoy the Conservation Area which has many trails and nature areas, picnic site and a huge 1/3 acre pool.
