With the beautiful weather coming out in full force, it’s time to get out and enjoy that sunshine! There are many activities available in Kleinburg for those looking to take advantage of everything this season has to offer; however, one of our absolute favourite pastimes is hiking. Luckily, because of Kleinburg’s beautiful natural surroundings, there are plenty of hiking options readily available. Here are 5 of the best hiking trails for you to explore in Kleinburg this summer.
Boyd Conservation Park
Boyd Conservation Park is a gorgeous little gem that’s so close to home. We highly recommend trying the smaller trails, if you’re an experienced hiker, that take you into the woods. Of course, there is always the option of the main trails as well, that wind through serene landscapes and offer a chance for exercise and leisure. This is a fairly quiet park, meaning you’ll be able to get a great sense of escape while hiking here. As a reminder, Boyd Conservation Park is only open on weekends and does have an entry fee, but it is well worth the cost.
Kortright Centre for Conservation
If you have been following along with our blogs, you may have noticed we mention Kortright Centre for Conservation from time to time. This is an incredible centre that focuses on conservation education, and does it exceptionally well! This is the perfect place to spend a couple of hours or a full day soaking in the natural surroundings. Be sure to check in on their site to see all the events and programs they have available. One of the local favourites is the Sugar Bush Festival which goes into depth about the process of sapping and refining maple syrup.
Nashville Conservation Reserve
Nashville Conservation Reserve is a beautiful spot for a weekend hike! With tons of trails to wander around and wonderful scenery, it’s no wonder why people spend entire afternoons hiking here. As a quick tip, the entrance can be easy to miss so keep an eye out when you’re getting close. There is an area across from the entrance where a few cars can park just off the road so look out for those! Peaceful, gorgeous, and quiet, Nashville Conservation Area really proves the importance of continuing conservation efforts.
Elder’s Mills Nature Reserve
This is one of the smaller hiking spots on our list, but Elder’s Mills is an absolute hidden gem! Since it isn’t too well known, this spot offers a nice, quiet ambiance that’s perfect for a relaxing walk or energetic hike away from the world. Be sure to check out this extremely peaceful setting when you’re in the area.
Bindertwine Park a beautiful stretch of land offering a long, walkable hiking trail that travels along the picturesque Humber river. As you travel along the path, you’ll find the refreshing scent of the trees really transports you to a peaceful, natural space. As a plus, Bindertwine also has ample free parking, making this spot very accessible. If you’re looking for a full day of activities, there is also a baseball field, some tennis courts, and a grassy area for the whole family to get in on the fun.
