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 West Forest Trail consists of a twisiting path with gradual slopes leading through open meadows and forests containg giant beech, maple and hemlock trees.
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.
