Goderich Millennium

River Valley Vistas

Dramatic vistas, intimate woods and expansive floodplain – all couched on the southern bank of the Maitland River Valley. Highway 21 to Nelson Street Access – This challenging section is sculpted into the most precipitous face of the river valley and affords an unusual view of some river rapids. Nelson Street to Mill Road – This more moderate section descends into the Proudfoot Historical Tract and the extensive Maitland River Valley flood plain. Proceeding upriver, enjoy the panorama of the valley before climbing to the top of the river bank. The Maitland Trail Association or Tourism Goderich is the contact.
