Old Mill Trail, South Farmington, Annapolis County
The Old Mill Trail in South Farmington, Annapolis County, is a lovely little trail, tucked away in the back of a subdivision.
Looking for a new hike to try, we decided to check out the Old Mill Trail which is tucked away in behind Wilmot, off Route 1.
The trail is a figure 8 loop trail, only 700m long.
Old Mill Trail is the first wheelchair accessible walking trail opened by the Municipality of the County of Annapolis.The trail has been leveled, compacted and designed in a way that people who require a wheelchair can move along it with ease. Throughout the trail, there are benches, picnic tables, and bridges that are accessible to people walking the trail, and to those using a wheelchair. Old Mill Trail is situated on 2.2 acres of land along the banks of the beautiful Annapolis River.
The walk only took us about 15 minutes.
We were awarded with some stunning views.
And, see if you can spot the Christmas tree!
The trail weaves and wends through a hardwood forest. It is definitely stroller and toddler friendly.
