foot path

Feet keep the path. A section of the Spencer Creek trail in Dundas, heading toward Creighton Street, reveals the dynamic relationship that exists between walkers and the earth. Truly a footpath, it's existence testimony to its utility. Everyone who walks the trail contributes to its maintenance and care.

The Spencer Creek trail is a very utilitarian trail compared to some more recreational trails, largely due to it's central location. Passing through town means it crosses roads and is close to businesses and homes. Yet it provides sanctuary, an escape from traffic and concrete, and, as we make our way to a destination, the trail invites us to interact with the ever-changing natural environment that refreshes and enriches our lives.
