Great place for a hike
Sep 2019
The forest paths are well maintained with wood chips and are clearly marked. Watching the Tree Top Trekking was a blast...can't wait to zip line in the woods! There was a wedding going on too...a really nice place for a special event. Best of all, our dog was allowed to join us on the hike!!

A walk in the Forest
May 2019
The trails are in good condition for the most part and quite well maintained.
The trail markers are easy to see and follow.
Be aware that cyclists use these trails and although most of them are responsible riders there are a few who seem to think they own the trails and pay no heed to walkers.

Family day

Thank you to all the idiotic people who walked on the NORDIC XC trails with snowshoes. You ruined our day and 1.5 hour car ride.

Nice Spot to go for a Picnic
May 2018 • Family
Nice place to go with family for a picnic to just enjoy the fresh air. The forest also has trails in the area for people interested in hiking and getting some exercise done.

Wonderful wedding venue at the Conference Centre
Nov 2017 • Couples
We attended a wedding here recently and were quite impressed with this out of the way place....the main Centre was quite lovely and accommodated both the ceremony and a seated dinner for approximately 100. Dorm type rooms came with the rental which doesn't suit everyone, but worked for some. Tables and chairs were provided by the venue, but we did need to set up ourselves and bring everything else, but it was worth the effort. It would have been nice if we'd had a better day to enjoy the outdoors, but otherwise, it was a lovely spot for a special wedding.

Cross Country Skiing in December 2016 - A pleasant afternoon
Dec 2016 • Couples
We were getting ready for a big trip and decided to pop out to limber up the legs for days of skiing to come. We had a lovely 1.5 hour trek through the woods. The forest here is quite open in that there is very little low brush so it's cool to see through the trees down in to the valleys and across the flat areas. I've heard there are deer and kept my eyes peeled but no sightings. the skiing was fairly easy terrain with nice wide turns and long straight cuts. We are not excellent skiers, so one big hill had us both laughing flat on our backs!!!!

Forest stroll
Sep 2017 • Couples
Beautiful hiking trails within the forest.

Multiple trails (various distances), we did the yellow trail (4km). It was beautifully maintained. We passed one lady riding a horse and another couple on the trail. Otherwise it was really tranquil.

The ground on trail was Soft, but not muddy and there was fair amount of horse dung on the trail we were on.

As for entrance fees, you can self service after business hours. 6$ per adult for day entry.

Bring some water, and decent hiking shoes. Stay on the main trail. If you want to have a picnic there is area for this near the parking lot.

I will be back to explore the Ganaraska Forest.

Great natural forest area
Sep 2016
Ganaraska Forest is part of the world's largest forested area, the Ontario Greenbelt. The endless walking trails are great. Tower Hill is a must place to check for out being part of Canadian history.

Beautiful trails and accomodations (with a Scout group. Clean and well marked trails in and out of the forest. Would love to walk, or horseback ride next time during the fall with all the beautiful colours.

A walk in the (fantastic) park
Nov 2016 • Family
This great part is large enough to allow you to walk without seeing anyone for good periods if you are looking for quiet time. No large hills prevented our 2 year old from enjoying the trail. Must be careful to stay on the tracks when poison ivy is present though! Overall, we love it. Plenty of nature to observe whether you are focused on the forest or the trees or the mushrooms colorful leaves, etc. Or even the nice pine smell!
