About the trail

One of our city's best-kept secrets is Trillium Woods trail - a scenic, peaceful pathway that offers walkers, hikers and runners access to a nearby natural forest and immeasurable beauty.

Set within Williamsburg Cemetery, Trillium Woods trail winds through the woods and over a quaint, wooden footbridge - providing about a 30-minute route, paved in bark chips.

Your path is marked by a series of historic farm artifacts, each featuring a unique story. Arthur Hewitt generously donated these pieces.

Trillium Woods features nature at its finest - from its blanket of beautiful trilliums in the spring, to one of its most popular guests - a Pileated Woodpecker - in the fall. No matter when you visit, you'll be reminded our city is made up of stunning spaces.


Trail etiquette

  • please keep to the trail and follow any directions on signs
  • Williamsburg is an area for quiet reflection for many people; please respect others when you visit
  • keep the right side of the trail as you move along it
  • keep dogs on leash and remember to pick up after them
  • do not use motorized vehicles (cars, mopeds, ATVs, snowmobiles) on the trail, and respect residents that live along the trail by proceeding quietly – particularly in the early morning or evening
