Countryside Preserve Trail

Welcome to the Uxbridge Countryside Preserve – 140 acres of rolling meadowland, woodlands, wetlands and ponds . . . criss-crossed by 9 kms. of marked trails. On your journey through the Preserve, discover art pedestals, interpretive ecology displays and local flora and fauna on over nine kilometres of trails.  Enjoy three kid friendly trail loops inspired by nature with frogs, butterflies, and birds. It is situated on the Oak Ridges Moraine in an area protected and classified in the Provincial Moraine Plan as ‘core’ because such lands contain the greatest concentration of key natural heritage features. The Preserve is just south of the urban boundary of Uxbridge, right behind the major shopping complex on Highway 47 at Concession 6. It is truly “Where the Countryside comes to Town.

Trail Numbered posts are at trail intersections and markers key locations. Each post has a trail map, with a “You are Here” indicator. The posts have a sloping top, with the slope oriented towards the North. Also, there are blaze markers, with directional arrows to help you follow the trails.

The Countryside Preserve also connects to other trails including Wooden Sticks and Timber Tract.
