Backus Woods is one of the highest quality old growth hardwood forests in all of Ontario and the best remaining example in the Carolinian Life Zone. Maintained walking trails guide you through numerous habitats such as dry forested ridge, wet slough, buttonbush swamp and floodplain. The trails are open year-round and are ideal for hiking in spring and fall and cross country skiing in winter.

The 30 acre Brook Conservation Area is located on the Lynn River in the southeast corner of Simcoe. Trails totalling 2.3 km go over a dam and through a forested area providing opportunities for walking/hiking, fishing and nature appreciation.

Located just 5km west of Port Dover, enjoy walking along the 2 km nature trail that loops through wooded areas and past the Hay Creek Reservoir providing opportunities for bird watching and viewing a variety of plants. Hay Creek is also home to some Carolinian forest species.
