You will enjoy this 3.0 or 4.0 km trail, starting in a lovely example of man made plantation forest. It is designed and maintained according to forestry management principles of spacing for maximum growth, soil and site factors, thinning, etc.
Forestry was formerly big business in Simcoe County, in this mixed softwood and hardwood region, until cleared for farm operations, sometimes unwisely. Simcoe County Forest strategies include recovery of forests in much of the rolling terrain, otherwise unsuitable for farming, as many early families found with hard times.
From the Brentwood Trail you can link onto the Ganaraska Trail marked with white coloured paint blazes on trees. If you are into geocaching you'll find one half way over this trail, with its variety of ravines and flats with easy grades for walking and hiking and snowshoeing in year round outdoor pleasure.
This area is also a favourite spot for other trail users, such as motorcycle riders.
