Description

Sheffield Conservation Area at 8032 County Road 41, Erinsville ON is nestled within the Canadian Shield. The area offers an advanced 4.5 km trail that loops through the property and provides runners with birds-eye view of Little Melon Lake. The area also contains a water access point for launching a canoe or kayak.

Part of the property is home to a dark sky viewing area that is maintained by the county of Lennox and Addington. Inexperienced runners may find the trail challenging. Proper footwear should always been worn. Depending on skill level, it may take up to 6 hours to complete the loop. Make sure to always have plenty of drinking water available before starting the run.
