The Rackham’s Pond trail begins near the parking area at Rackham’s Pond and follows the west bank of the Wheatley River upstream for about a kilometer. In the first section, the trail is up the bank from the river and is mainly treed. In the next section, the trail curves down next to the water’s edge and is mainly tall grasses. The trail ends where the river forks; there is no loop at this time, so you have to turn around and come back along the same trail. Some features to take note of: tree swallow nesting boxes, wood duck nesting boxes, osprey nesting platform, and in-stream bank restoration structures. Please be respectful of the land and landowners who have allowed us to walk along their private properties.
