Secord Forest and Wildlife Area

January 08, 2021  •  1 Comment

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.
