Claireville Conservation Area is situated on the west branch of the Humber River, at a place where the boundaries of Peel Region, York Region & City of Toronto meet (just southwest of junction of Hwy 50 & Hwy 7). It is one of the largest tracts of land owned by the Toronto Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), and contains significant natural and cultural heritage features. The landscape of the park is diverse. Its characteristic features are numerous creeks and ravines, flat plains, and rolling hills enriching the forested landscape.
Our hike will take advantage of mostly flat terrain, with gravel roads & trails through the heart of the park, past open fields, meadows, woods and tree plantations.
Please bring good walking shoes or boots, sun hat, snack & water bottle.
Doreen Smith is a very experienced hiker on the Bruce Trail and many other pathways in our region & other parts of the world, and a long-time HVHTA board member who has led many hikes for our members & guests.
Meet at conservation area entrance from Hwy 50 (south of Hwy 7, north of 407), on west side of highway just south of Humber Nursery. Look for Claireville park sign.
