Site Description and Birding Information: Perron Road/Trail is a dirt road/track giving access to the forested area in the central portion of the Larose Forest. In places it deteriorates into little more than a dirt track, so while it might be driven, especially with a 4-wheel drive vehicle, walking is still the best option. There is a good mix of deciduous and coniferous forest with scattered wooded swamplands along the way. The area can be quite wet in any season but winter, so boots are recommended in warmer months. Insects can be bothersome at that time too.
From Nine Mile Road you can go west on the Perron Road/Trail. If you want a good hike, you can make one of the loops mentioned in the Perron Road South of Clarence-Cambridge Boundary Road site.
