The 30-acre Brook Conservation Area, located on the Lynn River in the Southeast corner of Simcoe, provides opportunities for nature watching, fishing and hiking. 

At the entrance to the trail, one can see the remains of a shoddy mill that was once operated by the Brook family. The trail provides access to the Lynn River for fishing and links to the Lynn Valley Trail.

Trails totalling 2.3 km go over a dam and through a forested area providing opportunities for walking/hiking, fishing and nature appreciation. The trail includes some hills and has a natural base with exposed tree roots.  A small picnic area with a few tables is available. The park is open sunrise to sunset and it should be noted that the entrance gate is locked each evening.

The trails at Brook Conservation Area are open year round.
