What you'll do
Strap on a pair of snowshoes and explore a remarkable, mature maple, beech and cedar forest that is a rare example of pre-settlement woodlands in southern Ontario. Many of the trees are 250 to 300 years old, tower over 30 meters high, and clearly show the vertical stratification characteristic of a true, old-growth forest. Our guides will take you on a magical NIGHTTIME snowshoe trek through the forest, pointing out various types of trees, terrain, water features, magical streams, birds and wildlife abundant in the Ontario forest. Trek will be followed by a healthy group lunch in a warm and cozy setting with an outdoor fire (weather-permitting). What a great way to spend a winter evening!
