Stoney Island Conservation Area


This Conservation Area offers a number of different trails ranging from beginner to intermediate in terms of difficulty (the latter contain sharp uphill or downhill runs). These trails are groomed in winter for both snowshoeing and skiing. There is a choice of 1.5, 3 and 5 km loops throughout this 39 ha (97 acre) wooded area. The site features challenging ridges, meandering creeks and bluffs overlooking the Lake Huron shoreline.



This 40 hectare property was purchased by Saugeen Conservation in 1977. The property is located approximately 5km north of Kincardine along the Lake Huron shoreline. Stoney Island contains nature trails which welcome public use on a year round basis.

On a hot summer day enjoy a peaceful, relaxing hike. In the winter months the trail system has been developed for excellent varied cross-country skiing opportunities. A snowshoe trail is also available. Cross country skiing competitions are held annually at this location.

Features of the area include the historic carriage trail and remnants of a maple syrup operation. There are a several creeks which meander throughout the Conservation Area and which are traversed by beautiful hand-crafted bridges. These bridges were designed and built by the Ventures of Kincardine and area. This Conservation Area is maintained by the Kincardine Ski Club.
