Oak Ridges Corridor Conservation Reserve Trails
Oak Ridges Corridor Conservation Reserve is comprised of approximately 600 hectares of green space in the heart of the Oak Ridges Moraine. This area serves to protect the headwaters of the Humber and Rouge Rivers. With more than 15 kilometres of maintained trails, visitors are given a window into one of the most diverse collections of habitat on the Oak Ridges Moraine. This property includes wetlands, kettle lakes and forests, supporting
many unique wildlife and plant species, with large portions being provincially designated as Areas of Natural and Scientific Interest for their physical and ecological values.
Bathurst Glen Golf Course, the ‘Dynamo’ rail line generating station ruins at Bond Lake and retired agricultural fields provide visitors with reminders of the rich cultural heritage of this area that dates back thousands of years to when the land was used by First Nations.
The Oak Ridges Corridor Conservation Reserve consists of lands owned by the Province of Ontario and Toronto and Region Conservation Authority and is managed by Toronto and Region Conservation Authority.
