Clinton Conservation Area
One of the nicest family playgrounds in the area is located at the Clinton Conservation Area. With a spacious picnic pavilion, a playground and a hiking trail with a footbridge over a shallow portion of the Bayfield River, there is something for people of every age. A recent addition has been a nine-hole disc golf course. Bring a frisbee and try it out!
The hiking trail is a two-kilometre double loop that starts out near the pavilion. One loop stays on the park side of the river and hugs the bank of the river for a pleasant and easy walk after your picnic. The second loop makes it a true hike and starts just across the footbridge and continues on upstream, up a ridge and circles back to the bridge through a small pine plantation.
There is often evidence of beaver activity in the area, with the occasional dam popping up along the river and on one of the side channels that you can see from the ridge.
In fall and spring there are times where the water tops the footbridge making the back loop of the trail inaccessible.
