Trails & Maps
Did you know that the Ferguson Forest Centre adjoins over 300 hectares of forested Crown land? That's more than 800 acres perfect for walking, skiing, and snowshoeing along the many trails and forest roads.
The forested area adjacent to the tree nursery production lands was not sold in 1995 when the Province turned ownership of the nursery over to the township, and remains provincial crown land. In 2001, the Ferguson Forest Centre Corporation entered into a 10-year partnership agreement with the Ministry of Natural Resources to manage the Nursery Forest.
Aside from developing and maintaining the forest trail network, the partners plan to educate visitors through the demonstration of management practices which promote a healthy thriving forest ecosystem. It is our mission to manage this renewable resource sustainably and to the benefit of the plants and animals as well as the people who use the Nursery Forest.
The Management Trail, a 2.3 kilometre self-guided walking trail designed to further your understanding of forestry in Eastern Ontario, takes you through a variety of both natural and planted forest types common to this part of eastern Ontario. Along the way you will find a number of information stops designed to introduce you to a variety forest management techniques. Our hope is that you will learn something about forest management and the environment in which we live. Enjoy your walk and your visit to the Nursery Forest.
