Walk through Ferguson Forest Centre

Take a picturesque walk-through Ferguson Forest Centre and take in the colours of fall! With more than 1100 acres of maintained land and 22 kilometers of trails, there is no shortage of nature to immerse yourself in. Although these trails are equally as breathtaking in the summer months, there is certainly something to be said for the brisk breezes that come with fall in combination with the woodland creature scurrying about collecting food for their winter hibernation! Even better, Ferguson Forest Centre has a beautiful, large fenced-in dog park where your furry friend can roam, play, and explore safely!
