The Millennium Trail System includes trails developed by the City of Woodstock, Woodstock Rotary Club, Woodstock Lions Club and Youth Start and is maintained by the City.
The trail follows the banks of the Thames River, through mixed hardwood and softwood forests, marshland and some retired agricultural areas, some of which are slated for reforestation.
Hikers may spot the occasional deer, beaver, blue heron and other interesting wildlife. Black berries may be ripe for the picking. Though the trails are not connected, they are in close proximity to each other.
