Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Area is a 6.2 mile point-to-point trail located near Brighton, ON that features a great forest setting. The trail is good for all skill levels offers a number of activity options.
I absolutely loved this trail. It's one of those places you don't expect to be so good. it was awesome for mountain biking though at times there were spots I had to get off my bike and navigate around. Because of falling debris and I would recommend bug spray. But overall it was worth the 50km drive from my place.
Really enjoyed it
Good well marked trails, but the relentless mosquitos ruined the hike!!
Do NOT enter the trails without bug repellent, and LOTS of it!!
Will return in the fall.
The Goodrich Loomis conservation area is a great place to hike and mountain bike. You have a choice of numerous loops - which also loop onto each other. Nice creek running through the property and an Esker that you can hike up. The trails are well maintained, although some of the further back loops can be quite muddy. There is lots of room for parking and there is a clean vault toilet near the parking lot. Recently, a doggie-doo-doo bag dispenser was installed and the conservation area does hire an independent security/by-law company to enforce the leash law and poop'n scoop law.
There is a large wooden map just past the bridge to show you all of the trails - and their lengths are included. I rarely find this place busy, and usually never run into people. Unknown to a lot of users, is the fact that there is a trail on the other side of the road from the parking lot. I'd guess it to be about 2.5-3km maximum and its a nice trail that leads you past a wildflower grassland and up through a spruce plantation. This is also a looped trail, but you do hike a bit before the loop starts. I would recommend visiting their website: http://www.ltc.on.ca/conservation/ca/gl/
Good trail for mountain biking. Can do a loop. Also good for cross country skiing and hiking.
