Long Sault Conservation Area's natural beauty can be explored on any section of the more than 18 km of marked trails that wind throughout the property. Offering trails with a range of difficulty levels, Long Sault Conservation Area is a favourite destination for many outdoor enthusiasts looking to pursue a number of different recreational activities in all seasons.
Nestled in the heart of the provincially significant Oak Ridges Moraine, Long Sault Conservation Area (~400 hectares) is the largest conservation area owned and managed by Central Lake Ontario Conservation Authority.
Once part of the Agreement Forest Program operated by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry, Long Sault Conservation Area now includes mature forest, plantation, wetland, and meadow. This area is considered an important core wildlife area because of the diversity and size of the habitats that it contains. It also includes headwater tributaries that are an important part of the Bowmanville/Soper Creek Watershed.

MAINTAINED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH
Trail Stewards (CATS)
Our Conservation Area Trail Stewards program was initiated in January 2020 in an effort to improve the experience for our visitors and help keep the wildlife safe and wild. Identified by their yellow 'Volunteer' vests, these trained volunteers visit our conservation areas at least once a month to engage and educate visitors, and maintain the trails.
