Very much enjoyed this trail! Nice drive there, peaceful and quiet and variety of trails to choose from. Bring the bug spray!

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.

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.

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/

This 4km loop trail is a favourite of mine. It takes you up a short incline to walk atop the Esker and then gently walks you down the other side about 1.5km later. From here you head through the forest for a while and end up hiking alongside Cold creek. Next is a planted coniferous forest and then ending where you started on a grassy field. About 45minutes to hike, but there are a number of looped trails that stem from this trail. There is a large wooden trail map a few 100 yards from the parking lot which will show you the route. All the trails are well labelled. This trail is located at the Goodrich Loomis Conservation area, (part of Lower Trent Conservation) and you will have lots of parking, no admission fee, and there is a clean vault toilet near the parking lot. Trail is also great for mountain biking and cross-country skiing in the winter.

Good trail for mountain biking. Can do a loop. Also good for cross country skiing and hiking.
