The Dunsford Nature Trail is a recently built trail on a converted railway line and it extends 2.5 km from Dunsford to Verulam Concession Road II. The Dunsford Nature Trail starts out on the old railway bed right near the edge of town. The terrain is very flat and easy to walk.
Near the center of the trail is a bridge that overlooks a large marsh area. You can hear the red wing black birds chirping here and there is evidence of beavers everywhere. Dunsford Swamp is a natural area southwest of the town of Dunsford at the junction of four townships - Fenelon, Verulam, Ops and Emily. It is an area of lowland swamp and forest at the headwaters of a branch of Emily Creek.
Directions: Access to this trail is available in the Town of Dunsford, which is located northeast of Lindsay and southwest of Bobcaygeon on Sturgeon Road (Kawartha Lakes Road 7).
