East Forest Trail - Fleetwood Creek Natural Area

Fleetwood Creek Natural Area is a 900-acre (380-hectare) tract of land managed by Kawartha Conservation for the Ontario Heritage Foundation. Located within the Oak Ridges Moraine, the area is characterized by steep valleys, sand soil and many coldwater streams. These streams form the headwaters of Fleetwood Creek, a major watercourse within the Kawartha Region watershed. The East Forest Trail takes you through dense cedar forest, followed by a climb up the valley slope. The trail ends with a walk through an open meadow and then back through the forest to the parking area.

Directions: Take Highway 401 to the Highway 35/115 exit (north to Peterborough). Take Highway 35/115 north to Manvers Concession Road 6 (at Ballydruff, north of Pontypool). Turn east on the Concession and travel four kilometres to the entrance on the south side of the road. Access to the trails is available from the parking lot.
