In recognition of both National Forest Week, Sept. 17 to 23, and Forest Stewardship Council Forest Week, Sept. 24 to 30, the County of Simcoe is offering free guided hikes in several Simcoe County Forest locations throughout the region.

Each hike will be approximately 1.5 km in length and on a beginner-level trail. The hike should take no more than 90 minutes to complete.

These guided hikes will be led by a knowledgeable and experienced County forestry staff member who will provide details on the rich history and current management practices of the Simcoe County Forest.

This will be a rain-or-shine event, so participants are reminded to dress according to weather conditions and bring water bottles or additional items in a backpack.
