The McCrae Lake Conservation Trail – found on Georgian Bay Rd. off Hwy 400 – is in actuality a winter Nordic trail.
However, in the warmer seasons, the trail is used for recreational hiking purposes and to access the McCrae Lake Wilderness Area. Officially designated as a Provincial Wilderness Area, McCrae Lake is exceptional in that it houses no commercial development at all; it remains unspoiled and in its natural state.
Consisting of 2.8 km of trail one-way, the McCrae Lake Conservation Trail winds its way to the Crow’s Nest Lookout, situated on a 100-foot granite cliff, overlooking the untarnished waters of McCrae Lake. From Hwy 400, north of Port Severn, take the southbound on/off ramp to Georgian Bay Rd. to access this conservation trail.'
