SCOUT VALLEY is 2 km west of Orillia . You’ll find this 93 hectare nature park and former Scout camp, with its three trails each 2.0 km long. These trails are Algonquin Trail, Sugarbush Trail and the Homestead Trail.

Here one finds a superb recreational and educational community resource with a Provincially Significant Wetland, a remnant of majestic white pine, two substantial areas of hardwood bush and various landforms to catch your interest.

The three trails inter connect, although you can start and finish each one independently, from three separate parking lots. Walking is mainly hilly of moderate difficulty. You can see the old retreating Ice Age Lake Algonquin shoreline, that covered much of south central Ontario formerly and gave us much of today’s topography, an interesting study to follow up on.
