Universal Trail


The Universal trail in the Carstairs Tract was constructed to minimize obstacles to accessibility. The trail was designed to meet or exceed accessibility standards. The trail has 4 loops branch off a common trail.

The Carstairs Tract is interesting as it was once farmed then was planted as an arboretum in 1948 and then re-planted with Red Pine, White Pine, White Spruce, and European Larch in 1950. Some of the arboretum trees can still be found within the plantations.

The Northumberland County Forest is a 2 195 hectare
(5 424 acre), multi-use forest and is managed for ecological conservation, recreation and timber harvesting. There have been many changes to the Northumberland County Forest's recreation program, so please be sure to read the information related to your activity.
