The Golden Springs Trail begins by traveling northward along several old bush roads, then continues by passing through abandoned mine tailings and upland forests before reaching Sand Claims Crossing.
After passing a man-made dyke, the option of taking the more direct South Trail into the conservation area or continuing on the Gold Spring Trail to the north is presented. Some highlights include the amenities in the Hershey Lake Conservation Area.
They consist of extensive beach, washrooms, and a picnic shelter. Furthermore the picturesque Rainbow Lake can be enjoyed while walking along its surrounding boardwalk, and the Jake Pine Lookout provides typical bog lake scenery with its unique plants, trees, and animals.
