Palgrave Forest and Wildlife Area – Maze Hiking Trails

Located on 306 hectares within the Humber River watershed on the Oak Ridges Moraine, the Palgrave Forest and Wildlife Area has 33 kilometres of hiking trails. This protected forested area provides habitat to numerous plants and animals, including over 200 species whose population has been declining. The beautiful trails can be used for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding and in winter for cross country skiing and snowshoeing. Although the trails are marked, if you have no sense of direction, you can easily get lost on the Palgrave Trail and find yourself trying to get out what will seem like a maze :). The Palgrave Forest and Wildlife Nature Area is part of the Toronto and Region Conservation Areas (TCRA).

NOTE: There are a couple of things that are confusing when trying to figure out the mapping of the trails. The blue trail marked on the map below as the Bruce Trail, is actually marked as the Palgrave Side Trail on the Bruce Trail Reference Map and Trail Guide and is none existent on the Bruce Trail App. If this trail was mapped out on the Bruce Trail App it would make it a lot easier to navigate through.

Nonetheless, this is a beautiful area to explore and have fun along the way trying to navigate yourself through, however I would discourage hiking it in the dark.

  1. I stumbled onto this after reading about your snowshoe adventure. You may have heard by now that the former Palgrave Side Trail was turned over to the Oak Ridges Trail Association. That’s why it’s not in the Bruce Trail app.
