QUOTED FROM 2oldguyswalking website:  This one is really “out of the way”.

Take Hwy 28 North from Port Hope to Bailieboro. Turn right on Cty rd. 2 just past the bakery. Follow #2 East until you hit a stop sign, then continue to the left. Once you cross over Bensfort Bridge, start looking to your right for Crowley rd. Turn right (South) on Crowley and drive to the gates. There’s no signage of any kind designating it as a Conservation Area.   https://goo.gl/maps/K3QAfS9R4rYQ6Abz5

The No Trespassing signs pertain to the private properties on each side of the green gate. So, you can still access this area by going around or over the gate and walking down the public access to the pits. The gate is just to prevent motorized vehicles access.
