Important information and trail safety for Barnum Creek Nature Reserve and Dahl Forest

  • A reminder to be on the lookout for blacklegged (or deer) ticks that may spread Lyme disease. CLICK HERE for a link to the HKPR Health Unit for more information.
  • Please keep dogs on a leash and remain on marked trails. This will help avoid unfortunate interactions with wildlife such as porcupines and ticks.
  • The entrance gate to Barnum Creek N.R. is now open.  Watch for rocks and bumps as you enter. You may also park along Gould Crossing Rd. either near the gate or near the rail trail crossing.
  • The hike up Gould Crossing Road is short (about 5-10 minutes) but quite steep so please use caution and take your time if this is your first visit. It is a multi-use road so keep to the side of the road.
