Sager Conservation Area offers picnicking, trails and a scenic lookout. The area is part of a glacial feature known as Oak Lake Island, a series of large drumlins that formed an island in glacial Lake Iroquois. The drumlin in the conservation area is one of the highest points of land in the area and provides an excellent point from which to view the surrounding countyside including part of the Trent River valley.

A short 1 kilometre trail starts at the base of the hill and climbs steeply to a scenic 30ft tall lookout tower, offering spectacular panoramic views of the Trent River valley and surrounding area. There’s a total of 97 steps on the trail plus another 48 steps on the tower – a bit of a hike but the view is worth it! Once you reach the top, interpretive signs tell a story about some of the natural and cultural features of the area.
