Durham East Cross Forest Conservation Area protects an ecologically sensitive part of the Oak Ridges Moraine. Here you will find springs, seepage areas, and wetlands that form the beginnings of East Cross Creek and Pigeon River, along with significant wildlife habitat and natural features. There are currently over 7 km of sustainable trails. They offer excellent hiking, bird watching, bicycling, horseback riding, cross-country skiing, and snowmobile access for Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) members. Along the way, you will pass through sugar maple forests, pine plantations, open meadows, and sand barrens. You can spot many unique species of birds, such as Wood Thrush, Canada Warbler, Northern Flicker, and the Savannah Sparrow.
