Wawanosh Valley Conservation Area Trail
The Wawanosh Valley Conservation Area, location of the Wawanosh Nature Centre, is an area highlighted by a scenic 3 km trail loop. The trail crosses the Belgrave Creek, passes through meadows with hedgerow plantings and down a steep hill to the cedar lowlands at the river. A boardwalk leads through the hemlock forest to the upland hardwoods or red pine plantation. Follow the edge of the forest back to the parking lot area.
The Wawanosh Nature Centre is a magical learning environment that provides teachers and group leaders with the opportunity to complement classroom learning with hands-on, outdoor experiences. The property contains a diversity of natural habitats making it an ideal setting for education and recreation activities Information provided by the Maitland Valley Conservation and Ontarios West Coasts websites.
