30 kilo­me­tres of trails await

The Glengarry News - - The Opinion Page -

South Na­tion Con­ser­va­tion in­vites res­i­dents to en­joy over 30 kilo­me­tres of trails that re­main open and main­tained through­out the win­ter.

Trails at the fol­low­ing SNC Con­ser­va­tion Ar­eas are groomed for win­ter use and are ac­ces­si­ble free of charge: W.E Burton and J. Henry Tweed in Rus­sell, Two Creeks For­est in Mor­ris­burg, Robert Gra­ham in Glen Ste­wart, and War­wick For­est in Berwick.

The re­main­der of SNC’s 14 dayuse con­ser­va­tion ar­eas across its 4,384-square-kilo­me­tre ju­ris­dic­tion in Eastern On­tario re­main closed for reg­u­lar win­ter main­te­nance and will re­open in May.

“Our con­ser­va­tion ar­eas of­fer great year-round and close-to­home ad­ven­tures,” ex­plains SNC Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Spe­cial­ist, Tay­lor Camp­bell. “The groomed trails are great for win­ter hikes, snow­shoe­ing, cross-coun­try ski­ing and geo­caching.”

SNC’s con­ser­va­tion ar­eas are pop­u­lar recre­ational des­ti­na­tions within the re­gion; in 2018, they were en­joyed by over 80,000 peo­ple.

“We’re thrilled to be keep­ing these nat­u­ral spa­ces open and ac­ces­si­ble to res­i­dents through­out the win­ter,” adds Tay­lor Camp­bell. “They serve as beau­ti­ful re­minders to pro­tect and cher­ish our lo­cal en­vi­ron­ment.”

SNC also re­minds res­i­dents to be cau­tious when vis­it­ing its con­ser­va­tion ar­eas as some trails, board­walks and foot-bridges may be slip­pery depend­ing on weather con­di­tions.
