NEW Map 1 Reroute from km 10.5 to (Wildwood C.A. Kiosk) to entrance to the Dr. Murray Forest (posted 2013 MAY 31)
“Once on the east side of Hwy. 7 the trail continues past the Wildwood Conservation Area kiosk, crosses the road, follows the blue arrow straight ahead and up the hill on the grass; keep following the Lake Trail (blue arrows) through a short section of bush, cross a wooden bridge to a T and an open area and turns right then left at the RV campground passing the Dr. Murray Forest sign on the left and follows straight ahead on the blue Lake Trail road. It enters the bush to the left at the head of the Lake Trail signage. Eventually the trail skirts the sides of fields and back into the bush, crosses a stream and passes through another wooded area before reaching the south west end of Perth-Oxford Rd."
