The Full Walking Loop

Park your car and visit Selkirk's friendly Sunflower Cafe. Walk or cycle South from the main corner, turn right onto Bluewater Parkway. Just south of the bridge in the early 1800's was a dam with the areas first grist and saw mills. Follow Bluewater Parkway along Stoney Creek, notice a funny smell, watch for deposits on the rocks, indicating minerals (sulphur springs). Passing through the forest, watch for wildlife coming to drink at the creek. In the spring, bluebells and Trilliums carpet the forest floor. Also, watch for wild yellow tulips along the road.This creek drains a large water shed and becomes a raging torrent after a heavy rain, or disappears into cracks in the rock in the summer.

Near the mouth of the creek, notice the trail bridge, in the early 1800's there was a dam with a woolen carding mill here. If you continue along the creek, at the mouth was a large pond net fishery, that sent catch of the day fish to Buffalo and New York City. Along the lake, notice cement V-shaped abutments. These provided protection from ice and storms for early natural gas wells. Cyclists can continue along the lake shore to Selkirk Provincial Park and onto Port Dover. Venturing across the Waterfront Way bridge instead will take you to a lake shore park with an outstanding view. Cyclists can continue along the lake shore to Dunnville; hikers can return to Selkirk via Erie Street.
