Potter’s Creek Conservation Area. The home base for Quinte Conservation, this area offers an abundance of recreational opportunities. Trails wind through this former farm, past fragrant orchards, open meadows and scenic woodlands. Perfect for birdwatching and photography. See some demonstration created wetlands on the Demonstration Wetland Trail. Hikers, bikers and cross country skiers will find the trails to be inspiring and diversified. The park area at the mouth of Potter s Creek overlooking the Bay of Quinte provides a great starting point for canoeists, kayakers and windsurfers. It also features an accessible trail. Use the underground tunnel underneath Hwy 2 to cross back and forth between the north and south properties.
