Trails

Whether hiking, snowshoeing, or just ambling along, 4 km of well-marked trails wind you through varied woodlands, each with its own character and mood, home to a wide range of plants and animals.

The main loop (white) circulates throughout most of the property, and 3 separate sub-loops (orange) in different areas of the property start and end from the main loop. Other short trails connect between and within loops.

Look up and you may see a racoon or porcupine, especially in the crook of a branch or trunk cavity. Look down and you may notice a burrow or animal signs like tracks or scats. Stop and listen carefully to hear birds you may not have realized were all around you in the forest, or the sound of deer gingerly stepping through the underbrush as they sense your advance.
