On a winter trip to the Guelph area, we decided to explore some of the local conservation areas. Once we paid for the first one in the Halton area, Mountsberg, we had free access to the rest of them for the remainder of the day. We warmed up in the truck on the drive over to Crawford Lake Conservation Area and decided to hike the Woodland Trail. There are about 19 kilometres of hiking trails at the conservation area, including parts of the Bruce Trail. In the winter they also have a snowshoe and cross-country skiing trails.
Along the trail there were some amazing carved sculptures of different animals to enjoy.
We also walked through the Iroquoian Village, which is part of the conservation area, but that’s another post.
