Regional Forest Hike Series
Join members of the Woolwich Trails Group on Thursday, May 24th at 10 a.m. for the fourth hike in the Regional Forest Hike Series, as we explore Drynan Regional Forest. This forest is characterized by a rugged topography with low-lying marsh areas contained within ridges of glacial till. The upland forest type consists primarily of red oak and maple-dominated hardwoods, however, there are also areas of conifer and walnut plantations. The property has a relatively short trail system, composed of old logging trails as well as a series of looping footpaths. Drynan Regional Forest is an ideal area for birding and spotting regionally rare animal species such as the blue-spotted salamander.
Please meet at the entrance to the forest at 1226 Dumfries Rd., Ayr, the second laneway on the west side of Dumfries Road, just south of Greenfield Road with a parking lot for several cars.
