Mark S. Burnham Trail


This trail winds through a mature hardwood forest.

Once a woodlot on the Burnham estate, this park near Peterborough was bequeathed to the province as a quiet spot for a walk in the woods.

Stop for a picnic or follow trails that meander through majestic stands of maple, beech, elm and hemlock – among the oldest in Ontario.

The access to the park is on Highway 7 just east of the donut shop. There is a large Ontario Parks sign on Hwy 7 making the park easy to find. There is ample parking when gates open in the summer. In winter, park in driveway, leaving lots of room for others to also park. Very popular with dog walkers.
