Lambton Heritage Forest Trails

Lambton Heritage Forest at Port Franks encompasses oak savanna forest, high dunes, wetlands and numerous trails that allow public access to explore this rare and beautiful ecosystem. The nature reserve protects exquisite oak forests and savannah meadows with habitat for Carolinian species that only live in the microclimate along the lake. On hot summer days the scent of juniper and pine among the dunes is intoxicating and the buzzing of cicadas creates a magical atmosphere. The Karner Blue Sanctuary has several walking trails at 9904 Nipigon Street. Thedford Conservation Area has nature trails located along the Ausable River Cut on Hwy 21. A series of interconnected trails can be accessed from the community centre: The Tulip Trail, High Ridge Trail and Savanna Trail intersect between the community centre and Outer Drive. The Ridge Trail links Outer Drive to its other access at 9901 Port Franks Rd. The Forested Dunes Nature Reserve is located at Huron St. off Riverside Drive.

The community centre also has tennis courts, a picnic area, washrooms and a children's playground.
