Trout Creek a Long Point Basin Land Trust property
We will be wandering into the trails at Trout Creek a Long Point Basin Land Trust property. We will be meeting at the the the parking lot. Area: Mixed forest
Trout Creek Nature Reserve honours the Miller family, who owned the property since the 1940’s.
This large property is mostly forested with good linkage to surrounding natural areas to the west. The site consists of rolling sand lands through which Trout Creek has cut a deep, steep-sided valley. Many species of wildlife call this nature reserve home, as the area is rich with native species and habitats.Bring clothing that is suitable for the weather and ticks. It is expected to be somewhat cool for this walk and slightly wet. Wear rubber boots that are comfortable warm/dry and definitely pack snacks and a hot bevy. Keep in mind that there are no garbage services at this time of year. Be prepared to pack out what you pack in. Sometimes we encounter litter on the trail so we pack out extras that are not ours.
