The 11,000 acre Ganaraska Forest is one of the largest blocks of forested land in southern Ontario. Today the forest is a living example of how the principles of integrated resource management can be used to balance many different uses of forested lands on a sustainable and ecologically sound basis. The forest is home to the Ganaraska Forest Outdoor Education Centre, a weekend canteen, and public washroom and shower facilities. The area provides abundant recreational opportunities and is managed for a sustainable yield of wood products.
All-terrain wheelchairs can be used in the Ganaraska Forest (through the Ganaraska Forest Centre) with a refundable damage deposit.
