The Little Ausable River Trail

The Town of Peru has built a chip seal paved trail to offer residents and visitors an opportunity to enjoy a variety of healthy outdoor activities within a beautiful and varied natural environment. The trail will also protect and interpret the important historic sites of Heyworth/Mason Park and a section of the D&H rail line, both instrumental to the Town’s development.

The trailhead is in Heyworth/Mason Park just off Mason Hill Rd in the hamlet of Peru.
With parking, benches, picnic tables, historic interpretive signage and a beautiful 1836 stone mill, it’s a great place to start your adventure.  The trail covers 1.25 miles, from Heyworth/Mason Park to the entrance to Sullivan Park on Route 22.  You can then use the sidewalk to connect back to the trailhead, for a 2.25 mile loop.
(see map)

It’s an interesting trip with massive cottonwoods, a planted pine forest, open fields
and the river. It seems to be an excellent birding site as well.  We now have several benches installed. Enjoy!
