Her Majesty's Royal Chapel of the Mohawks
  • Begin your adventure at Her Majesty’s Royal Chapel of the Mohawks, the oldest standing church in Ontario where you can take a free outdoor tour by downloading the Driftscape app and searching “Six Nations”. Here you will see the historic graveyard and tomb, which is the final resting place of Joseph Brant and his son, John Brant.
  • Behind Mohawk Chapel you can access part of Brantford’s 70km of natural trails to hike, run or bike along. Many of Brantford’s historic sites are also located alongside these trails, or can be easily accessed from them. The Hub of Ontario Trails connects you to Hamilton, Port Dover, Cambridge and beyond.
  • Follow the trails to Brant’s Crossing where you can enjoy river views or take the footbridge over the Grand River and continue on to view the beautiful flower displays at Lorne Park.
  • Treat yourself to a nearby treat from OMG Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt, where they take “ordinary” to “extraordinary” with enormous, decadent and definitely Instagram-able delights. Try your favourite ice cream flavor made into a milkshake or indulge in the mini donuts.
  • Two local restaurants are nearby, Maria’s Pizza West or Sammy’s Rec Room, offer delicious choices for takeout for the entire family. As you head back along the trails be on the lookout for paddlers on the Grand River, a unique experience you can book with area outfitters, Grand Experiences or Grand River Rafting Company.
