In keeping my promise to continue to hike all winter despite cold and snow this trail still was a winner. Light falling snow made for a beautiful hike. I did all the trails once again. Beaver Trail and Loop d Loop were wet so they were more of a challenge having to go slightly off trail to stay dry. Also probably very dirty if you took your dog. Loop d Loop is a good workout so don't skip it just to avoid a little water. All trails are wide and clear and trees are well marked making it still very easy to navigate with snow cover. Can't wait to return with snow shoes.

Was pleasantly surprised to find this hidden gem. Took my very energetic dog for an hour and a half walk. Very picturesque and hearing the sound of moving water is very relaxing. Only met three other people on our whole walk. So peaceful!

What a wonderful little hidden gem. I was very surprised by the Goodrich-Loomis Conservation area. Excellent parking with a porta potty at the entrance. Many different trails of varying length to choose from. Streams, forest, meadow and wide well cleared paths ( exception Beaver Trail and Loop d Loop which were less travelled, narrower and with many obstacles to watch for ) I did all the trails in 2 hours. Just a very few steep inclines. Not a strenuous hike but great exercise in a beautiful setting. Will definitely go back. Great for mountain biking as well. Trails are well marked and there are several picnic table locations.

A fantastic set of trails. Depending on the choice of trail expect to climb some hills. Beginning of April and the lower trails are still ice covered and quite muddy but overall a great place to hike.

Great marsh board walk trail. Even in the off season there are birds about. Nice and flat so accessible to all. The latter half of the trail is through some woods with funky, twisty trunks.

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

I don't think there is actually a trail at this location. There is parking and a good place to launch a kayak. Remember this is a Provincial Park and there is a day use fee.

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.
