Dahl Forest and Barnum Creek Hiking

When accessing Barnum Creek Nature Reserve, be aware that Gould’s Crossing Road past the rail trail should not be used in the winter.  The steep hill and beyond is not maintained in winter and is slippery and dangerous for vehicles.

THERE IS NO POOP FAIRY – With increased traffic we are noticing an unpleasant fact that there is more dog poop on our lovely trails. If you bring your dog, please clean up after it and take the waste bag home with you.  Do not leave the bag at the kiosk. This will help keep the trails enjoyable for everyone.

It is a wonderful time to get out in the crisp air and take in the wonderful winter sights here in Haliburton County!
