Vansittart Woods

The trail loops through hardwood and pine forests.

There is one long incline, but the rest is relatively flat. It is hard packed earth.

The public is welcome to use the trails.  Environmental Centre and trails are in use from Sep-Jun, Mon-Fri 9 am-3 pm to which public is not allowed. Public are allowed to use the trails from Mon-Fri after 3pm as well as on weekends and holidays.
