Valley Trail - Fleetwood Creek Natural Area


The Valley Trail is a 2.2km loop offering visitors two ways to enjoy the area. An observation platform offers a spectacular view of the surrounding land, while the more adventuresome can also travel down into the valley. Parking lots are located off Ballyduff Road and Solanum Way (unassumed road). Picnic tables are provided at the observation platform which is accessible from the Valley Trail. The Fleetwood Creek Natural Area is a river valley system.

It contains lowland forests, hardwood bush, meadows and steep valleys. There are over 250 kinds of plants and 44 types of birds in the Fleetwood Creek Natural Area, including wild turkey that were reintroduced into the region during the 1980s. A variety of geological formations caused by the past glacial period can be found in and around the area, including kames, kettles, eskers and ice-contact ridges. A large part of the Fleetwood Creek property is designated as a Provincially Significant Earth and Life Science Area of Natural and Scientific Interest (ANSI). Visitors are asked to stay on the trails so that the most environmentally sensitive sections of the property are protected. Information provided by the Kawartha Conservation website.
