Windy Ridge Conservation Area

Windy Ridge Conservation Area is an ideal spot for a relaxing walk, hike or snowshoeing adventure in the open air. Located southeast of Lindsay off of Mount Horeb Road, this conservation area offers 209 acres of pristine land and spectacular views.

The area is also home to a 1.3 kilometre, multi-use loop trail that begins with a gentle climb, then winds south for a short walk to the amazing lookout. On the area’s tallest ridge, you can witness an astounding panoramic view of the Fleetwood Creek wetlands. From there, the trail leads downhill to the valley floor and right to the water’s edge, before looping back through an open meadow to the picnic shelter and parking lot.

Hours of operation are 7am to 9pm May through October and 8am to 6pm November through April.
