Explore the Nature Reserves & Easements of our region by clicking on the map icons, or go directly to the property description listing below the map. Some have  maintained trails and a downloadable trail map, some are open to the public but have no trails, and others have an undisclosed location because they are privately owned easements.

These nature reserves are wild places with inherent risks. It is possible that you may encounter bears, moose, and other wild animals while visiting. Use at your own risk.

The Couchiching Conservancy acknowledges that the land on which it operates is the traditional territory of Haudenosaunee, Anishnaabeg, Wendat and Metis Peoples. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties.
