This 485-acre conservation area near Caledon, open year-round, is a popular spot for outdoor winter sports in particular for its cross-country skiing trails, snowshoe trails and rentals, an ice-skating pond and skating trail (bring your own skates), and winter cross-country ski lessons.
You can also go hiking, bird watching, or dog walking, or participate in special family programs, outdoor education programs, or “forest bathing” and nature retreats. It hosts the Maple Syrup Festival at Terra Cotta annually, as well as fall festivals and summer events.
There are picnic areas at the conservation area as well as parking and indoor washrooms. The indoor Watershed Learning Centre hosts educational programs and a visitors’ centre (weekends and special events days only) has snacks and hot and cold drinks.
