Greenwood Conservation Area

Trek through 38 kilometres of trails at the Greenwood Conservation Area. You will be rewarded with amazing lookout points, beautiful walks along the waterfront, and a leash-free dog area. Greenwood Conservation Area (also known as Ajax Conservation Area) has two main trails to choose from: Greenwood Conservation Area Loop (16km) and Greenwood Conservation North Loop (5.1km). The trails have a nice mix of shade and sun.

Make sure to check out the White Pine section, which has a beautiful viewpoint looking over the creek. It is especially stunning during the fall months. The paths are mostly smooth and natural, with a few mini ascents. 

NOTE: If you have the AllTrails app, it will help you navigate and help you get to certain areas you want to visit. There are several different trails and they don’t all connect, which can make it confusing. Another option is to take a picture of the map at the entrance to help with guidance. If you’re just looking to wander and create your own adventure, you’ll eventually make your way back to the start, so no need to stress.
