The Strathroy Water Trail is a 5 km loop of clear watercourse for recreational use on the Sydenham River. The river is the only major watershed in Canada that lies entirely within the Carolinian Life Zone and is home to many plants and animals that are found nowhere else in Canada. As you travel along the Sydenham River, you can see dams, mills, historic homes, churches and schoolhouses. The trail starts at the Conservation Authority Office and follows the river downstream to the Strathroy Marsh, with convenient access points along the shoreline for easy access and portage.
