The trails at the Conservation Area are amazing. There are trails for walking and harder trails for more experienced hikers. The views of Lake Laurentian are breathtaking at any time of the year. I strongly recommend everyone visiting or living in Sudbury to visit this gem!

Drove to the end of south bay road and take the trial towards moonlight beach. It is an easy walk on wide trail. The trail is lined with trees and also 1 wood bridge and 1 floating wood bridge. There is also a lookout onto Ramsey Lake after passing the floating wood bridge. It is late september and the fall colours are on full display. There are birds and squirrel along the trail and it seems they are not afraid of people. The only thing you need to worry about is cyclists who may be zipping by you at high speed. So do not put on your ear bud and listen to music.

Sudbury has a reputation for being a barren wasteland, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. The views from the various lookouts show how remarkably successful the regreening efforts have been. This is the best urban nature area in Ontario.

Lovely place to get some fresh air and stretch your legs. Have frequented these trails for years but encounter the same issue with every visit.

Have been jumped by countless dogs left unleashed by thoughtless owners. Best one yet was the man whose dog tore down the trail to greet me, jumping all over me while the owner yells 'don't worry, he's the friendliest pit bull you'll ever meet!'

Comforting.

Please leash your dogs.

I often bring my kids for free events. They love to swim here and play in the stream in spring. The trails are awesome and there are even a few geocaches to find.

It's a beautiful place for a walk and there's a bike/ski trail too (depending on the season) when you go straight up the road and not enter the main gate to the chalet. It's quiet and serene. The trails are just the right kind of challenge. Make sure to wear your trail shoes. We always go here whenever we're in Sudbury.

It is off the beaten track if you are a stranger to town but a familiar spot to townies. The views of the city are lovely and whether you take a walk or enjoy a swim, this is a wonderful place to get away and surround yourself with the beauty of nature.

Whether you like a quiet walk in the words, a more rigiours hike or to go all out, the trails have something for you. If you've not yet discovered this fabulous area of Greater Sudbury you really have missed something. pack a lunch, hit the trail, you won't be disappointed
