Riverside Nature Trail

The Riverside Nature Trail (RNT) offers trekkers the opportunity to observe four distinct ecosystems within a short walk.  Turtles, ducks and beavers are just a few of the animals that call the RNT home.  Don’t forget the fishing pole as the RNT offers great streamside access.
