Much of this part of the Dundas Valley has been cleared of its original forest. The major portion of the Reforestation Trail traverses a pine plantation established in 1957. The valley's 1,200 hectares of Carolinian forests, fields, cold-water streams and stunning geological formations are home to an array of rare plants, birds and wildlife.
The Dundas Valley area has numerous trails within it’s boundaries. For detailed maps and information on this trail and many others, an excellent place to start is the Dundas Valley Trail Centre at # 650 Governors Road
