Corduroy Trail


Springwater forest, encompassing 150 hectares, is the most significant of the few remaining tracts of virgin Carolinian forest in Canada. This zone extends from the Toronto - Grand Bend line south to Carolina and contains more endangered species than any other zone in Canada. American Sweet Chestnut, Paw Paw, White Mulberry, Blue Ash, Heart Nut, Sassafras and Trulip trees - all rare Canadian Carolinian trees can be found throughout the Springwater forest amidst a towering canopy of American Beech, Sugar Maple and White Oak.

The forest is also home to a number of rare bird species, including the Hooded Warbler, Tufted Ttmouse, Piliated Woodpecker and such mamals as the uncommonly seen badger. The Corduroy Trail is a secondary route that splits off from the main trail. It passes through a boggy part of the Springwater forest before reconnecting to the main system. Numerous corduroy bridges cross particularly west sections. It is a diverse ecosystem with a variety of flora and fauna. Be sure to wear bug spray in mid summer.
