Trail shared by Nicole Bruce

This is an easy trail loop just outside of Collingwood. The route is great for dog walks, and short runs.

Overview

There are lots of little side trails to take through a small wetland and conservation area, and the whole area is great for x-country skiing, running, snowshoeing, and cycling.

Need to Know

Road side parking can be found on Eleventh Line. Trails can get very wet and swampy during the early spring.

Description

The former Eleventh Line nature trail area has now been renamed to the George Christie Nature Trails in recognition of George's passion for the Collingwood Trails and his many years of dedication to their development. Check out the entire area. It is a beautiful wilderness retreat within the town limits and an outstanding location for a peaceful nature stroll or some snowshoeing in the winter months.

This route starts out on the Eleventh Line Trail. You'll continue on this flat route for a short ways before reaching an intersection with the Colberry Trail and the Georgian Trail. Take a sharp, sharp right onto the Colberry Trail. The going will remain flat, even as you transition from the Colberry Trail to the Turkey Trail. You'll take a slight right to follow the Turkey Trail.

Eventually, the gentle path will meet with the Deer Trail, and taking a final right will lead back to the Eleventh Line Trail, where you can either continue exploring, or return to the parking area.
