[Hike] Wilder Forest (Pleasure Valley/Walker Woods)

2499 Brock Rd

One of the latest trail systems in the Durham Region!

In 2007, Mr. & Mrs. William P Wilder donated 250 acres located between Concession 6 and Brock Road to the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA) for use by the public on a trail network.

Working in conjunction with the TRCA and through financial assistance of Green Durham Association, a parking lot and trail connects have been completed allowing for access to the Wilder Forest and Wildlife Preserve.

There is a nice sized parking lot on the right just past the stables.

Please join us in hiking the Wilder Forest area of the East Duffins Headwaters.

Expect to hike 8 - 9km at a slow to moderate pace of 4.5 to 5.5kms/hr in about 2 hr. Pace and distance may be adjusted according to trail conditions and to ensure the safety and comfort of all participants.

Please dress in layers of appropriate outdoor clothing that can easily be removed or added as needed. The terrain is rugged and hilly and will be muddy at times. Please bring 1L of water and sturdy hiking boots/shoes. Hiking poles are helpful but not required.
