The southern end of this trail, also known as the Brown Hill Trail, starts from Holborn Road, approximately 1 kilometre west of Highway 48. The parking lot is on the north side of the road and additional parking is available on the street in Brown Hill at the Brown Hill Station Park.
The trail begins in a reforested area and heads west a few metres before turning north for its remaining 4 kilometres, to the Brown Hill Station Park. Deer and a variety of smaller animals abound on this trail because of its serenity and proximity to water.
The trail crosses the Black River via an old railway bridge. It has a dry gravel surface and is bordered by marsh land and a forested area lending itself to a variety of birds. Information provided by the East Gwillimbury website.
This 2.4 km trail runs between the Otonabee River and an abandoned railway.
Get your pass early, on-line by November 1 and save over $60.00!
