Stoney Island Conservation area has over 6 km of all-season trails, used for walking, jogging, trail biking and bird watching from spring to fall.  In winter, trails are reserved for cross-country skiing, and 5 km of snowshoe trails, all maintained by the Kincardine Cross-Country Ski Club.

The trails pass through a mix of evergreen woods, more open forest and some meadows.  The trail along the Lake Huron shoreline follows the route of the nineteenth century coaching road, with excellent views out over Lake Huron.

There are several creeks which meander through this property and are traversed by hand-crafted bridges.

All trails are open to the general public from spring until fall.  During the winter months these trails are used for skiing and snowshoeing
