Nature Reserve becomes reality in Caledon Hills

Support from our donors at the end of 2015 made it possible for the Bruce Trail Conservancy to purchase a 6 acre property in the Caledon Hills section of the Bruce Trail, and today the final regulatory processes are complete allowing this newest Nature Reserve to be permanently added to the Bruce Trail's Conservation Corridor.

This delightful Nature Reserve is characterized by a thick forest that graces the Escarpment's edge and spills down a rocky talus slope. Roughly 300 m of the main Bruce Trail and a portion of the Hockley Heights Side Trail have been secured by preserving this land.

You'll find this newest Nature Reserve at 3rd Line EHS and 15 Sideroad in the Caledon Hills section of the Bruce Trail. Its southern end is at km 70.3 on Map 18 of the 28th Edition of the Bruce Trail Reference, and it can be accessed directly from the 3rd Line EHS by following the Hockley Heights Side Trail.
