Maple Nature Reserve Trails

The Maple Nature Reserve is a 35 hectare area consisting of various habitats that are host to a variety of wildlife. With over three kilometres of natural trails to explore and enjoy, it possesses unique and special attributes that are significant to the ecosystem of the Don River watershed.

This environmentally rich area of the Don River watershed features mature forest, valley, meadow, rolling hills, ponds and wetlands. The ecologically diverse natural communities provide vital habitat for more than 300 species of plants and animals, including rare species, such as the Grove Chickweed and the Northern Red-bellied snake.

Located on the Oak Ridges Moraine, one of the most ecologically important geological landforms in southern Ontario, this reserve is adjacent to the Maple Uplands Area of Natural and Scientific Interest. The Little Don River, part of the headwaters of the Don River, runs through the site, affording both education and enhancement opportunities.  The research arboretum contains unusual exotic tree species that have continuing scientific interest.
