Welcome to the Headquarters Conservation Area. This Conservation Area is indeed, one of Saugeen Conservation's most popular 'day-use' areas. The Headquarters Conservation Area is located 4.8 km south of the Town of Hanover and is also the location of the Saugeen Conservation Administration building.
The H.C.A. has approximately 5 km of established trail systems which include a variety of habitats, from upland hardwoods to coniferous bog. The trails are fabulous at any time of the year, whether one is simply hiking in the spring or summer, or trekking on snowshoes in the winter months.
These 4 very different trail systems all interconnected and all encompassing very different habitats. Habitats vary from bog and upland hardwood forest to a cedar forest with a natural sulphur spring. Boardwalk systems and bridges exist in certain areas. Each system could be described as a leisurely hike.
