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

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.
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.
