July 23, 2021

There are two separate sets of trails, separated by a railroad track, that are part of the David Drive Tract (see page 42). I tried the McCowan road side.

Google Maps has a bit of a problem with it's address of  17242 McCowan Road. The trail entrance, with parking lot, do not show up on Street View. The parking is on the west side of McCowan between Vivian Road and Davis Drive. It looks like it is fairly new but easy to find.

I was attracted to explore this because of the large pond that the trail went around and it's outflow creek. Unfortunately, the pond was not that impressive; no signs of life except I did hear a frog. The outflow creek was a trickle so this pond is either spring fed or simply collects rain.

I only spent 45 minutes there and walk about 1.5KM (red portion). That includes the part of trail marked in yellow. I had a hard time finding this section and the exit by the parking lot has been blocked by new fencing. It doesn't look like they are planning on keeping that section open.

If you go, the entrance to the trail is at the back left hand corner of the extended parking

Some pictures of the pond with the outflow pipe

Lynde Shores spring walk https://www.thepassingshow.com/blog/2021/6/lynde-shores-spring-walk by Dave Brooks

On Thursday June 10th several TPS members met up at the Hall Road parking lot for a walk along the marsh and Lake Ontario shore line. A few swans, ducks and turtles were out as well as red wing black birds, geese and seagulls, of course. The swans had had their  young ones

York Regional Forsests - Drysdale Tract https://www.thepassingshow.com/blog/2021/5/york-regional-forsests---drysdale-tract by Paul Naish,
May 18, 2021

The Drysdale Tract was made possible by a generous donation from the Drysdale Family of a 136-acre property between the York Durham Line and Ninth Line south of Vivian Road.

It presents a pleasant walk through old scotch pines and mixed forest. It's an even flat walk except for a couple of hills at the very southern side of the walk.

Care is required in navigating the trails:

  • There are unmarked side trails, some of which appear to be main trails (see red lines above).
  • There are no markers at trail intersections, or on the trails, to help determine where you are.

The combination of these two conditions can lead to confusion in finding your way around.

The southern trail borders a stable where horses can sometimes be seen in the paddocks. There are also farm buildings.

Drysdale WoodsDrysdale WoodsDrysdale Woods

The tract has an old Iron Wood tree, thought to the largest in Ontario.

Rouge National Urban Park - Bob Hunter Memorial Park - Monarch Trail East of Reesor https://www.thepassingshow.com/blog/2021/5/rouge-national-urban-park---bob-hunter-memorial-park---monarch-trail-east-of-reesor by Paul Naish,
May 12, 2021

I've made two trips to the eastern portion of the Monarch Trail. They label two separate trails for Monarch. The one I walked was supposedly the non-cycling trail however, cyclists were using it. At present, there are no trail signs so you have to find information from the Monarch Trail web page. The Monarch Trail is listed as a 7.6KM loop. This makes it difficult to identify how long a segment is.

My first trip was from the parking lot at 7373 Reesor Rd. My second was from the parking lot at 7914 14th Avenue (beware there are 7914 signs on both sides of 14th. You want the south side one).  On my two trips, I overlapped where I turned around. I figure that the distance from the 14th Avenue Parking lot to the Reesor Road parking lot is a little over 2KM; about an hour. If you car pool, you can leave cars at each end so you can walk straight through (unless you want a 4KM round trip)

 

When the trail meets the river from 14th, you will see a bluff on the river to the north. I haven't found a trail to it.

Here are some pictures from both my treks from either end.

Glen Major Forest https://www.thepassingshow.com/blog/2021/5/glen-major-forest by Paul Naish, May 5, 2021

A short hike, on this scenic trail, on a cool overcast day in early spring. Glen Major Forest showcases several headwater types, gigantic trees and a regenerated gravel pit. There are a large number of hills that the trail goes around  and up and down. As noted, extremely rugged with narrow & hilly terrain.

This trail is just down the road from Walkers Woods that the TPS has also visited.

On this trip, I walked  to G17. From the starting point of G24 and back, round trip was 2.2KM. Next trip I plan to go to the Lookout by G16.

It's interesting how the have restored the old quarry pits and how much life has come back.

Between G22 and G17 are the remains of the Hopkin's Homestead.

I believe this is likely the old house

The pictures below showed a larger foundation and I suspect was the barn.

This is as far as I got at G17 (they have a great trail marking system). I think the hill shown is the Lookout. You can see the trail winding is way around.

It's very scenic. More so once the leaves are out.

Secord Forest and Wildlife Area https://www.thepassingshow.com/blog/2021/1/secord-forest-and-wildlife-area A few brave soles ventured out in -10C weather to try our this trail system. The sun came out part way through our walk which created some beautiful pictures with the overnight frost on the foliage and trees. 

Lands owned by the Toronto Regional Conservation Authority (TRCA) within the Duffins Creek watershed (totaling 23.3 km 2 ) are currently used for a variety of purposes including conservation, education, recreation, forestry and agriculture. For details see http://www.trca.on.ca/dotAsset/37451.pdf

The Secord Forest and Wildlife area is comprised of 93 hectares (230 acres) of ecologically sensitive land. The property also includes a barn, a pet cemetery, three ponds, and a mixture of wooded areas, wetlands and open fields. The largest pond is a dominant feature on the property and is maintained by the dam on the West Duffins Creek at the pond outlet

It is not well promoted but numerous links can be found by Googling the name.

The parking lot on Secord Road can be found on Google Maps at 44.017796, -79.182462.

There were a number of costumed interpreters in each building to explain what would have been happening during the Christmas season in days gone by.

The Victorian Farmhouse (the "Brown House") was set up for a traditional Christmas dinner and typical preparations in the kitchen.

The Log Cabin was set up to read a Christmas story to the children. It was here you got the sense of the struggle of working after the sun went down and you had to rely on candles for light. If you look closely, you can see Santa in one of the window panes in one of the pictures.
