The Orono Crown Lands occupy 633 acres of the former Ontario Tree Nursery. Thirteen km of well marked and maintained nature trails meander through a varied habitat of mature evergreen and deciduous hardwood forests. Many trails are easy walking, with benches and a large picnic area west of the Ochonski Road entrance. Wilmot Creek, one of Ontario’s best cold-water creeks, runs through the property. A spawning run of rainbow trout occurs in mid-April with a salmon run in late August.
Activities include walking, hiking, bicycling, fishing, dog walking, as well as cross country skiing and snowshoeing in the winter.
There are no admission or parking fees and free trail maps are available. Please consider submitting a membership form or donating through the donation station at the Ochonski Road parking lot.
