The Universal trail in the Carstairs Tract was constructed to minimize obstacles to accessibility. The trail was designed to meet or exceed accessibility standards. The trail has 4 loops branch off a common trail.
The Carstairs Tract is interesting as it was once farmed then was planted as an arboretum in 1948 and then re-planted with Red Pine, White Pine, White Spruce, and European Larch in 1950. Some of the arboretum trees can still be found within the plantations.
The Northumberland County Forest is a 2 195 hectare
