Arriving in Greenwood, the trail runs along just outside the main street, but by turning off and exploring this city you step into what could only be described as a colourful experience!  From the outburst of colour of the innumerable hanging baskets, Greenwood pronounces its colourful past with a burst of blues, greens, yellows and reds.  Just take the time to stroll the streets, visit the museum and soak up some of the colour history of Canada’s smallest incorporated city.  Return by retracing your steps back to Midway.
