This trail runs from Christie Conservation in the south through Beverly Swamp up to the Fletcher Creek Ecological Preserve in the north . Some sections are on road , some of which can be busy . One section is quite steep and could be difficult to casual hikers . Christie park is very regulated with pay parking etc . The Fletcher Creek Ecological Preserve is unregulated and has been know for large bush parties in the past . Beverly Swamp in the middle is a bug's paradise . You will need sturdy boots for the off road sections and log pants for tick protection permethrin treated preferably . Definitely need mosquito repellent and deer fly patches . Fairly long days outing bring lots of water and as all water along the trail is considered contaminated . The adjoining land owners are not friendly so best to ignore them . Enjoy !

Very hilly, but note, a good portion 2+ km of this trail is ROAD, the middle section of the trail is broken up - the trail stop at Safari Road and then restarts at 8th Concession. We turned back as we had dogs and didn’t want to walk on the road with them, but may be nice if you start at the north end and walk south (towards 8th Concession). Don’t think we would do this again, between 6th Concession and Safari Road it is very hilly.
