Gravel Pit Trail – Coldstream Conservation


The Coldstream Conservation Area has two trails - the trail in the south end of the Conservation Area takes you through a cedar swamp, a rare experience in Southwestern Ontario. The trail north of Coldstream Road is a wonderful place for spring wildflowers and birds.



Two trails are contained in this area. The Trail in the south end is a short loop through a cedar swamp, a very rare type of wetland for southern Ontario. A boardwalk takes you through the oldest, most mature part of the cedar swamp. The longer trail in the north end of the park starts off along an abandoned gravel pit and then winds its way through a floodplain forest. There are several loop trails through this forest
