How can I help keep Oxford County beautiful and healthy?

On trails, please remember to clean up after yourself. Provide adequate space for flora and fauna. Even if animals do not run away from you, they may be protecting young. Finally, take only photos and leave only footprints. If you'd like to give back, you can consider purchasing a tree. If the parking lot is full at the trail you're visiting, consider coming back at a different time or choosing a different trail to avoid overuse.

What other trails are nearby?  What other trails are over 5km?

Nearby you can check out Veteran's Memorial Walkway and Participark (just cross Baldwin and add it onto your hike!), The Borden Crescent Trail or The Great Trail.
