My favorite trail of Backus Woods. Runs along a wonderful little brook with great scenery.

Hiked 12 km of the Backus Woods trails starting from an access point on the 3rd Concession Road. The trail is well marked with trail maps at each intersection. There are many interpretive signs along the trails with detailed information of native plant species. An easy hike with a few muddy sections and a few inclines. The boardwalks and bridges are all in excellent repair. We only averaged 3.5km/hour because of all the reading we did. A bit buggy due to the wet June weather. Employ usual tick precautions. This hike is a hidden gem. Enjoy!

Best trail of the forest, one of the lightest used, can be VERY muddy in early spring late fall. Watch for deer ticks.
