Most of this ride is along a portion of the Walter Bean Grand River Trail. The ride goes east, through trees, near a golf course, then winds through a long open area near the Grand River. Our trail will follow the winding river as it turns north and then northwest. We will stop near the Grand River for a rest. There is a short stretch of residential road (Grand River Dr) before joining another trail which goes through a treed area. We then turn around and return along the same route.
