Park and Hike

To protect hikers and wildlife on the woodland roads, vehicles are required to be left at one of the designated parking areas.

The principal parking areas provide direct access to the major hiking trails.

Please always drive slowly and safely and carefully observe the posted speed limit of 20km an hour.

The trails at the Limberlost Forest provide access to innumerable special natural features as well as tours around a number of the larger lakes. Guests are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the trail guide and safety information before embarking on their day tour.

Limberlost is famous for its varied hiking trails. Their development began more than 80 years ago.

In total, Limberlost offers more than 70 km of woodland trails and extensive woodland roads, rated as to the grade and quality to cater to those seeking more strenuous exercise.

More than two-thirds of the trails on the Limberlost Reserve are groomed and qualify as high quality trails, as opposed to rugged hiking paths. As such, they are suitable for joggers as well as individuals who prefer to enjoy nature at their leisure.

Furthermore, large sections of the trails have been widened to enable hikers to walk abreast each other and engage in conversations undistracted by concerns about stumbling and hurting themselves.

We are grateful to neighbouring cottagers who volunteered their time to work on the trails, as well as to those who contributed historical information for inclusion in our Limberlost Master Guide. This information should help visitors spend many safe and stimulating days enjoying and learning about nature. The Limberlost Master Guide contains background information on popular natural features and selected wildlife habitats on the Limberlost property. Donations go directly to Trails Youth Initiatives, who have a Northern Campus at the Limberlost Forest.
