Recreational Use of the County Forests
One of the primary roles of the County Forests is to provide for a range of passive recreational pursuits for County residents and tourists alike. Many studies have shown substantial benefits to the health and well-being of those who spend time in our natural environment; be it more active pursuits or simply enjoying nature. Distributed throughout the County, the many forest tracts provide an opportunity for residents to enjoy these benefits close to home.
A Recreation Policy and associated by-law is in place to ensure that all responsible users of the forest are able to continue to enjoy their recreational pursuits. Please obey all signs, respect the forest, other users and neighboring property owners, and enjoy your visit to the Simcoe County Forests.
