Brook Conservation Trails

The 30 acre Brook Conservation Area is located on the Lynn River in the southeast corner of Simcoe. Trails totalling 2.3 km go over a dam and through a forested area providing opportunities for walking/hiking, fishing and nature appreciation. The trail includes some hills and has a natural base with exposed tree roots. A small picnic area with a few tables is provided. The park is open sunrise to sunset and it should be noted that the entrance gate is locked each evening.

Accessibility Challenges

  • Note that the hills and natural base with exposed tree roots may make it difficult for some users.
  • Also, there is a gate at one end of the bridge crossing the dam that will make passage difficult.
